Prentis Robinson, 55, was on Facebook live-streaming his walk home from the local police station after having his phone stolen, when suddenly Robinson was approached by a man who killed him in cold blood.
A local university was on lock down for an hour.
Residents say Robinson often used his Facebook page to publicize neighborhood disputes.
This isn't the first time a shooting has been captured on social media.
In 2016 Philando Castile's girlfriend live streamed his death on Facebook after he was shot by a Minnesota Police Officer.
And last spring, the cold-blooded murder of a Cleveland grandfather was also streamed live.
Police are still scouring for clues searching for a killer on the run.
