Baltimore Man Killed While Streaming 'Game Night' Party On Facebook Live

Authorities in Baltimore are investigating a deadly shooting that occurred during a "game night" party that was being held at a short-term rental home and streamed on Facebook. Ernest Wilson III was live streaming as he walked into the backyard when an armed man jumped over the fence. The man ordered Wilson to get on the ground as the video cut out. 

Baltimore City Councilman Eric Costello said that two suspects climbed the fence and demanded money before shooting Wilson. 

By the time police arrived, the suspects had fled. Wilson was rushed to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Authorities have not released any more details about the shooting.

There were around 15 people at the party, which was being held in defiance of Maryland's stay at home order, which bans gatherings of more than ten people.
