Teen Accidentally Kills Himself On Instagram Live While Friends Watch!
“I heard a big boom. I couldn’t tell if it was a gun shot or what.”
Shaniqua Stephens had just watched her 13-year-old son take out the trash Monday evening when she heard a noise.
“I just knew that it was something that was wrong,” she said.
She and her daughter ran upstairs and found him. “We kicked in the door. We found him just laying there in a pool of blood,” Stephens recounted. “My daughter screamed and said, ‘Mom turn his phone off!’ As I proceeded to look at his phone he was on Instagram Live.”
Stephens isn’t completely sure how Malachi got the gun. She was told he got the gun from a friend who got it from someone else. Detectives told her they are working to find out who originally had the gun and passed it to the friend.
