Teen Unintentionally Shot and Killed While Live on Instagram

18-year-old Dylan Hemphill and his friend were in the living room of the friend's house in Detroit, Michigan.  They were showing off money and a rifle while live on an Instagram video.  The friend put his finger of the gun's trigger and unintentionally discharged the weapon. Hemphill was struck in the back of his head.

According to reports, Dylan's mother said of the boys, "They're close friends. They're like brothers. I treated that boy like he was a son of mine."

Dylan died at the house.  His friend was arrested and is in police custody.

Another recent shooting was captured live on Facebook.  Devyn Holmes, 26, and two others were sitting in a vehicle in a parking lot in Houston, Texas playing with two guns.  According to reports, in the video Cassandra Damper can be seen waving a handgun.  "Hey man, you're making me nervous," Devyn said.

Another person in the car is heard saying, "She got no clip, bud." But seconds later the gun discharged, hitting Devyn in the side of the head.   Authorities report that Devyn is brain dead and on life support.

Cassandra was arrested and charged with tampering with evidence. Police say she tried to wipe off any gunshot residue that might have been on her hands.  She is free on $2,500 bond.
