Man Live Streams His Own Murder During Facebook Live Video: Reports

By Joe Ward | June 16, 2016 12:39pm

CHICAGO — A Facebook live video appears to show the final moments of a 28-year-old man before he was fatally shot Wednesday in North Lawndale.

Antonio Perkins was shot dead in the 1600 block of South Drake Avenue at 8:43 p.m. Wednesday. He was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital where he was pronounced dead at 9:07 p.m. Wednesday, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office.

Perkins appears to have live streamed a gathering with friends in an open space before shots ring out, according to reports.

In the video, Perkins is filming himself drinking from a bottle and looking around. About six minutes in the video, Perkins' eyes dart to one side of the street and he says "boy, stop it" before two shots ring out.

Perkins can be seen stumbling when the phone falls out of his hand and tumbles on the ground before going dark. At least four more shots can be heard on the video.

"Tony's down!" a voice can be heard, referencing Perkins. "Call the police!"

A man can be heard coming up to Perkins and asking where he was shot and if he should roll the man over.

A police spokesman said detectives were looking into the video and could not say if it showed Perkins. No arrests have been made, police said.
