CHICAGO — Seriously, folks, this is hard to watch, even though you don’t specifically see a man get shot — the sounds of bullets and the camera falling to the ground are quite disturbing — so think carefully before watching.

Video posted to social media appears to show a brazen shooting in Chicago that left a man in critical condition.

The 31-year-old victim was taking part in a “Facebook Live” video — recording himself and streaming the video to Facebook.

He was standing outside a store at 55th and Hoyne in Chicago’s West Englewood neighborhood when the shooting happened.

He was hit multiple times and taken to the hospital, where he was fighting for his life, according to WGN.

Police said the victim is a documented gang member.

They are following up on leads.
