The 2-year-old boy was killed along with a 26-year-old man, who was the target of the shooting, a spokesperson for the Chicago Police Department told ABC News. The man was also shot in the head.
The two were pronounced dead at area hospitals.
The Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office identified the child as Lavontay White. The identity of the other victim is pending notification of his next of kin.
A 20-year-old woman was also hospitalized after she was shot in the stomach. She is currently in fair condition.
All three victims were shot in a moving car in an alley, said police, who confirmed to ABC News that the shooting was gang-related.
Investigators have “very optimistic leads” in the case, police said, adding that detectives are currently analyzing surveillance video from the area.
They are also reviewing a nearly 30-minute Facebook live video that has surfaced and may have captured some of the incident as it unfolded. Police have not confirmed the authenticity of the video and whether it was filmed live in the car where the three were shot.
