Man Captures Mass Shooting On Facebook Live: ‘There’s Multiple People Been Shot!’

A man inadvertently captured a mass shooting live on Facebook this week after a traffic jam turned deadly in South Carolina. The incident reportedly occurred in Myrtle Beach early Sunday after a fight broke out among several men, one of whom pulled a gun and opened fire. Seven people were reportedly hospitalized as a result of the event.

“If you’re watching this, stay away from Fourth Avenue North and Ocean Boulevard,” Bubba Hinson, who captured the video, said during the Facebook Live stream. “There’s multiple people been shot!” The video, which has since gone viral and is still available on the site, had well over 4 million views on Facebook as of Tuesday evening.

2 injured on Riverwalk and 9 in Lawndale among 32 people shot

Family members crowded into a small corridor under the “Emergency” sign at Mount Sinai hospital after a mass shooting injured nine people about a block away in Lawndale early Sunday.

Few details were available about the shooting in the 3300 block of West Douglas Boulevard, where police canvassed a green space dividing the road. They laid down more than 30 evidence markers.

One man waiting outside the hospital said his 17-year-old son was shot in the leg. Another man said a 24-year-old relative was undergoing surgery for a gunshot wound to the side.

Chicago police officers guarded three vehicles parked near the entrance, one with a bullet hole in the back window, apparently used by the victims to drive themselves to the hospital, according to preliminary information from a law enforcement source.

Preston Strong Guilty of Arizona La Mesa Street Murders – People

An Arizona prisoner was convicted earlier this week in the 12-year-old murders of his best friend, the man’s girlfriend and her four young children in what authorities described as an hours-long spree of violence.

Preston Strong, 50, was found guilty Tuesday of six counts of first-degree murder for killing 35-year-old Luis Rios, his 29-year-old girlfriend, Adrienne Heredia, and her four kids — 13-year-old Andreas Crawford, 12-year-old Enrique Bedoya, 9-year-old Inez Newman and Danny Heredia III, 6.

Prosecutors, who declined to comment to PEOPLE, argued the 2005 murders in Yuma, Arizona, were fueled by greed after Rios stopped giving Strong hand-outs, the Associated Press and KYMA report.

The family was attacked after arriving home on June 24, 2005, authorities have said, according to the Arizona Republic. Strong then spent at least six hours suffocating Heredia and three of her children before he
