A 19-year-old man was charged Wednesday with first-degree murder in the killing of an 11-year-old Chicago girl who was shot in the head over the weekend.

Police suspect the 26-year-old man was the target of a gang hit.

The two-year-old boy, identified by U.S. media as Lavontay White, was shot in the head on Tuesday and died later at a hospital.

A man who was struck in the shooting was declared dead at the scene and the toddler was taken to a nearby hospital, where he later died. The woman was shot in the abdomen and taken in fair condition to Mount Sinai Hospital. She was listed in critical condition.

Grammys 2017: Metallica-Lady Gaga's flaming performance faces technical hiccup
The biggest (surprise) for me is we continue to somehow still have that revolving door of kids that come aboard. Lady Gaga and Metallica's explosive performance didn't start off as planned at the star-studded music ceremony.

No one is in custody for the shooting, which occurred in broad daylight and was streamed on Facebook Live by one of the victims, police said. Superintendent Eddie Johnson told reporters they have footage of the shooting and "promising leads" on the investigation. Police said they were also reviewing Facebook Live video that the woman was streaming when the victims were ambushed.

The driver of the auto then drove to Mount Sinai instead of calling an ambulance.

"Every parent, regardless of where they live, should be able to take their child for a walk to the park or a ride in the vehicle", he said. Two-year-old Lavontay White was murdered in Chicago on the afternoon of February 14, later dying on February 15, in a gang-related shooting. Last year, there were 3,550 shooting incidents and 762 murders, a total that averages to more than two murders and almost 10 shootings every day in 2016.

"They shot at us!" the woman says as she ran through the home. "I have a bullet in my stomach", a traumatized Breunna screams.

Meanwhile, the new hardtop and convertible variants of the Fortwo Electric Drive will begin to arrive in showrooms this summer. The vehicle has never been branded as one of the German luxury cars, although Mercedes manages Smart in the U.S.

More than 400 people have been shot in Chicago over the first seven weeks of the year. The toddler is believed to be 2 or 3 years old.

Police have confirmed the authenticity of the video and it is part of their investigation, spokesman Frank Giancamilli said.

Visibly angry, Johnson again demanded legislative action for repeat gun offenders. Among the other shooting victims were 12-year-old Kanari Gentry Bowers and 11-year-old Takiya Holmes.
