A three year old toddler in Chicago is being accused of pulling a gun on a woman who was in the child's neighborhood. And MTO News learned that the entire incident was captured on video.
The video, which has since gone viral across social media - shows the Chicago toddler walk towards a woman recording him.
The woman asks the child, "What are you coming over here for?" And the armed toddler replies, "You're about to see."
The surprisingly aggressive child then asks a few questions - and pulls a small caliber handgun from his pants, and point the gun at the woman.
With 89 homicides recorded, Chicago lived through its deadliest September in nearly 30 years, according to new data MTO News obtained from from the Chicago Police Department.
The number of shootings and homicides in 2021 continues to outpace 2020’s rates, new crime data released by the CPD on Friday shows, as Chicago has now seen 2,726 shootings and 616 homicides through the first nine months of the year.
That homicide total is already more than Chicago recorded through the entirety of 2018 or 2019 and marks a 4% increase over the first nine months of 2020.
