A 13-year-old from Forest Park Georgia accidentally shot and killed himself while livestreaming video on Instagram.
The mother of Malachi Hemphill says her son was filming himself trying to put a clip in a gun when he accidentally shot himself in his bedroom. He was rushed to Gracy Memorial Hospital in Atlanta where he was pronounced dead. “I heard a big boom,” mom Shaniqua Stephens said. “I couldn’t tell if it was a gun shot or what.”
According to Stephens, about 40 or 50 kids who had been watching the video ran over to the home after the accident. Police are currently investigating how Hemphill got the gun.
