A teenage girl in Louisiana and two others were shot dead while filming a viral crate challenge video for social media.
The crate challenge recently became a viral challenge on social media, with a number of people engaging in it and sharing their videos online.
At about 5:30pm on Sunday, while a couple of young people were filming their crate challenge outside Linwood Public Charter School in Shreveport, Louisiana, gunfire was opened and sporadic shooting occurred.
One 19-year-old Paris King was among the victims killed while filming the milk crate challenge video. Video footage shows a man attempting to climb a milk crate pyramid just as gunfire breaks out.
“Get my gun, get my gun!” one man shouted. Another man shouted “Where my baby?” It is however unclear if the man who was doing the crate challenge survived the shooting.
Reports were earlier made that two people were shot outside the school. First responders found Paris King shot dead in the backseat of a car at the scene.
A police spokesman told NewsWeek that a man tried to drive away after the shooting but stopped when he realized King was shot in the back seat.
The driver of the car, and the other passenger, did not suffer injuries, Newsweek reported.
