Sadly, it seems that shootings in the USA occur every day. There has been yet another shooting, and this time it was in Illinois.
Police have said that a man was shot and killed overnight near the scene where a girl captured the sound of gun shots on her Snapchat.
Kathryn Lawlor was minding her own business, snapping away as the sound of gun shots can be heard in the background followed by a panicked reaction.
The incident occurred near the University of Illinois campus in the early hours of the morning, with local reports stating that the gunman is still at large.
The footage, in which the loud bangs are heard, is captioned: "Holy shit. Guns fired."

According to the police, the shooting happened outside a local post office near a student bar. It is alleged that the incident followed an argument that escalated into the streets.
The victim was later identified as George Korchev. Another five people were injured after a fight broke out.
It is not yet clear whether the death of Korchev is related to the gun shots that were clearly heard on Lawlor's phone.
