The shooting starts at 3:00 minute mark leaving two dead, including a toddler, and a pregnant woman injured. Towards the end of the video a victim's family member can be heard talking to police and crying, as a police crime show plays in the background.

North Lawndale — A gunman opened fire on a man, woman and toddler driving down a West Side alley Tuesday afternoon, killing the 2-year-old boy and the man in a crime that was broadcast live on Facebook.

The pregnant woman survived a gunshot wound to her abdomen. She was recording herself on Facebook Live when the attack happened, police said.

The toddler and the 26-year-old man both suffered head wounds and were taken to Stroger Hospital, where they died, authorities said. The Cook County medical examiner’s office identified the boy as Lavontay White. The man’s name was withheld pending notification of his family Tuesday night.

About 1:30 p.m. Tuesday in the alley behind the 2300 block of South Kenneth Avenue in the North Lawndale neighborhood, a gunman ambushed the trio, police said.
