A man is fighting for his life after he was gunned down in Chicago while live-streaming video on Facebook, reports Fox 6. The video shows the unidentified male standing outside a store in the West Englewood neighborhood with at least one person nearby. Suddenly, shots are fired and the man apparently falls to the ground. His phone next captures a shooter—it isn't clear if there was more than one—firing shots out of the frame.

At least 16 shots can be heard in total. After a minute, a woman screams, "No, no, no. Oh my god, I don’t believe this." Police say a suspect shot the 31-year-old several times before fleeing the scene in a vehicle, per BuzzFeed. The victim is listed in critical condition, reports WGN. He was one of 10 people shot in the city Thursday, of whom three were killed, reports the Chicago Tribune. (Read more shooting stories.)
