Norfolk, Va. — Police in Virginia said three men were seriously injured in a shooting that was broadcast live to Facebook.

Police said in a release Wednesday that one of the three men found shot in a car Tuesday evening was broadcasting live video to Facebook when the shooting occurred.

A Facebook Live video was posted Tuesday evening showing three men sitting in a car, smoking and listening to music. About 5½ minutes into the video, gunshots can be heard. At least 30 rounds are fired in a 22-second span. The camera then falls to the floor.

Police say two 27-year-old men and a 29-year-old were taken to a Sentara Norfolk General Hospital with “significant injuries.” Police say two of the men are doing better Wednesday, but one is still in critical condition.
