American teen shot and killed during a Facebook live session

A teenager was shot and killed while on Facebook Live, near his home in New York on Tuesday (04.02.2020).

According to a CNN report, police responded to a 911 call about a male shot at Elton Street and New Lots Avenue in Brooklyn.

Police found 19-year-old, Jeremiah Dickey with a gunshot wound to his head unconscious and unresponsive.
The teen was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead, according to police.

The mother Debra Dickey said there wasn’t any way to know that something like this could happen to her son, especially while live-streaming on Facebook. She described her son as a loving kid with a good heart who loved doing things for others.

In a statement to CNN, Facebook confirmed that they removed Jeremiah’s video from their platform.

In the now-removed Facebook Live video, Jeremiah could be seen rapping along to a song for about 35 seconds from the inside of a car. After Jeremiah takes a quick look around, five continuous gunshots can be heard ringing through the air.

“This is a terrible incident and our thoughts are with the victim and his loved ones,” a Facebook company spokesperson said.

The NYPD told CNN they don’t know anything about the video and could not confirm whether the shooting had been captured on Facebook Live.
