A Facebook Live video captured the moment three Virginia men were shot and critically wounded as they sat in their vehicle listening to music during an ambush on Tuesday night.

Police in Berkley, a suburb of Norfolk, confirmed the three victims, who were in their mid-20’s were shot around 6 p.m.

The Facebook video, which continued to record footage for almost two hours, showed emergency responders and good Samaritans helping the three victims.

According to Norfolk police spokesman Officer Daniel Hudson, the video captured a shooting that is currently under investigation, which occurred on Bainbridge Boulevard on Tuesday.

The footage purportedly shows Williams recording himself smoking and singing as he sat in the passenger with two other men.

Five minutes into the stream, Willims drops the phone as the sound of gunfire can be heard.

The video continued to capture the frantic moments residents rushed to aid the wounded men and can be heard comforting the victims.

“Stay relaxed. Don’t go to sleep, keep your eyes open. Keep listening to my voice. They’re going to get you. It’s going to be OK.” an unidentified man is heard telling the shooting victims, as sirens are heard in the distance approaching the crime scene.

Authorities didn’t immediately release the identities of the victims or a description of the suspect.

A video from WTKR-TV shows a vehicle at the crime scene riddled with several bullet holes in the window.
