Video shows Chiraq murder

Of all the violent Chicago neighborhoods that I've visited this year, North Lawndale is the worst.

From the Chicago Sun-Times:
Last night a North Lawndale man who was steaming live on Facebook recorded his own murder.

About 8:45 p.m., 28-year-old Antonio Perkins was found face-down with gunshot wounds to the neck and head in a vacant lot in the 1600 block of South Drake, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner's office.

He was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 9:07 p.m., authorities said. He lived in the 3500 block of West 12th Place.

The video, posted by the New York-based website, claims that Perkins, also known as Cicero Yayo, was taking a Facebook Live video of himself partying with friends.
Warning--this video may be disturbing to you.

Perkins was an ex-con who did his time for heroin dealing. According to the Sun-Times the known gang member was on Chicago Police list of people who could be shot--or shoot someone.
