28-year-old Antonio Perkins was hanging out with friends he hadn’t seen in a while Wednesday night in North Lawndale. Two of his three young children joined him to enjoy the warm weather.
The sun was just setting around 8:45 p.m. as Tony recorded himself and his friends on Facebook Live. He wasn’t saying much. Then, a sudden blast of gunfire. Tony fell on the grass after two shots.
A flurry of up to ten shots followed.
He was pronounced dead at 9:07 p.m. from gunshot wounds to his head and neck.
