19 yr old rapper shot and killed while on Instagram live
A teenage rapper was killed after getting shot in the head while rapping on Facebook Live, near his home in Brooklyn on Tuesday. Around 6:45pm, police responded to a 911 call about a male shot at Elton Street and New Lots Avenue in Brooklyn, according to a statement from the New York Police Department.
Once they arrived at the scene, police found 19-year-old, Jeremiah Dickey with a gunshot wound to his head unconscious and unresponsive. The teen was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead, according to police.
In a press release, Facebook confirmed they removed Jeremiah’s video from their platform. In the now-removed Facebook Live video, Jeremiah could be seen rapping along to a song from the inside of a car. After Jeremiah takes a quick look around, five continuous gunshots can be heard ringing through the air.”
