In a shooting caught on Facebook Live, a 20-year-old pregnant woman was wounded, while her 26-year-old boyfriend and her 2-year-old child, Lavontay White Jr., were killed. The 2-year-old boy, 26-year-old man and pregnant woman were sitting in a vehicle in an alley in the 2300-block of South Kenneth Avenue in the city's North Lawndale neighborhood when another auto pulled up, and one person got out and started shooting around 1:30 p.m.
The boyfriend, whose name has not yet been released, was pronounced dead at the scene.
The little boy who died, police say, is the nephew of a pregnant woman who was also shot. The 12-year old, Kanari Gentry-Bowers, was also shot Saturday and is now in critical condition at Stroger Hospital.
Just over three minutes into the video, the woman looked toward the passenger side of the vehicle and appeared to react a split second before shots rang out and glass began to shatter.
"We have very promising leads, we have video", Johnson told reporters on Tuesday. Screaming is heard as the footage becomes jumbled but shows the woman exiting the auto and running toward a house.

A second auto drove by with three people inside.
"My gut is telling me that when we finally find this guy, we're going to find that he's a repeat gun offender". He tweeted at 3:50 p.m. that the boy had succumbed to his injuries and died at Stroger Hospital.
