Keke and the woman in the car are arguing when Keke notices that the woman has a gun.  The woman shoots Keke and Keke starts crying.  She was shot in her arm.  Her friend called for an ambulance and she was rushed to Stroger Hospital.  Investigators are using the Facebook video to try to identify a suspect.



The shooting occurred in the Parkway Gardens neighborhood, where Michelle Obama lived as a child.  Parkway Gardens has become one of the most dangerous neighborhoods in Chicago.  Michelle Obama lived on the 6400 block of South Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive, a minute away from the 6400 block of South Calumet Drive, where the shooting occurred.

Shootings occur in the area on a regular basis.  Gangs in Chicago have nicknamed the neighborhood "O Block." Police are trying new strategies to fight crime but it's been difficult to stop the violence.


A few hours after the shooting, Keke posted the following pic:
