CHICAGO — Po­lice are ex­am­in­ing dra­matic video that cap­tured a shoot­ing that killed a tod­dler and a man au­thor­i­ties say was the in­tended tar­get. The video , streamed live on Face­book, was taken from in­side a car driven by a young wo­man who was wounded in the shoot­ing. The man and 2-year-old Levon­tay White were also in the car. The wo­man and man can be seen lis­ten­ing to rap mu­sic be­fore more than a dozen shots ring out. Scream­ing is heard as the footage be­comes jum­bled but shows the wo­man ex­it­ing the car and run­ning to­ward a house. The video goes to black, but the au­dio con­tin­ues and peo­ple can be heard yelling, “Oh my God,” ‘‘I can’t breathe,” and ‘‘Please, no, no.” Po­lice sus­pect the 26-yearold man was the tar­get of a gang hit. The man was Levon­tay’s un­cle and a doc­u­mented gang mem­ber with an ex­ten­sive crim­i­nal his­tory that in­cluded ar­rests for armed rob­bery and bur­glary, ac­cord­ing to po­lice.
