Still from Facebook video of shooting.

A gruesome video posted online Thursday afternoon appears to show a man recording himself with his cellphone moments before being gunned down by an unknown gunman In West Englewood.

In the video, a Chicago man appears to be recording himself as gunfire goes off and he falls to the ground, around 4 p.m. in the 5500 block of South Hoyne Avenue. As the video continues, the apparent shooter stands overhead, fires several more rounds at an unknown target, and then steps out of view of the camera. The video continues for about another minute, showing clouds pass above a stop sign.

The man is 31, according to authorities, and was brought to Mt. Sinai hospital in critical condition, where he underwent surgery to treat his injuries. He was one of several people shot Thursday afternoon in Chicago—Two people were killed and one was wounded in a Garfield Park shooting around the same time. Police told WGN they are investigating the video.
