CHICAGO — Police are investigating a disturbing viral Facebook video of a man being shot multiple times on a Chicago street corner.
The video, which was being live streamed to Facebook, shows a man on a street corner talking to the camera when another man opens fire. (Warning: video is graphic)
The man recording the video of himself begins by saying that the corner store behind him reopened now that he's back in the area.
"I can't be out here without the store being open," said the man.
Then a car pulls up and shots rings out, while the phone recording the video drops to the ground. The video then depicts a gunman standing over the man and repeatedly shooting.
Police are investigating whether the video depicts a shooting in West Englewood Thursday, when police said a 31-year-old man was standing in the 5500 block of South Hoyne Avenue when a gunman walked up and opened fire.
The shooting victim was shot multiple times and was brought to Mount Sinai Hospital in critical condition, police said.
Police sources told the Tribune the video is consistent with what they believe happened in the shooting at 55th and Hoyne.
No arrests have been made in the case.
In the same hour, at least eight other people were shot throughout the city, two fatally. The fatal shooting took place outside a West Side elementary school, where at least one child witnessed the bloodshed.
