“I heard a big boom. I couldn’t tell if it was a gun shot or what. I just knew that it was something that was wrong. We kicked in the door. We found him just laying there in a pool of blood. My daughter screamed and said, ‘Mom turn his phone off!’ As I proceeded to look at his phone he was on Instagram Live.”
