Woman Charged In Shooting Streamed On Facebook Live


A University Park woman has been charged with wounding a woman in a shooting that was streamed on Facebook Live. Labritney Austin, 29, turned herself in to Chicago police around 4:45 p.m. Wednesday, less than two hours after the shooting was broadcast live and widely shared on the social media platform. Austin is accused of shooting a 27-year-old woman in the shoulder after they got into an argument around 2:55 p.m. The woman who was shot was broadcasting on Facebook while she argued with Austin, who was in a car in the 6400 block of South Calumet Avenue in the Parkway Gardens neighborhood on the South Side, police said. Austin took out a gun and fired, according to police. She is charged with aggravated battery by discharging a firearm. She was scheduled to appear in bond court Friday. Source: chicagotribune
