    Prentis Robinson, 55 years old, was streaming his day live when a man suddenly appeared and shot him multiple times. The suspect is now in police custody.

    A selfie stick is no doubt a very convenient tool when it comes to filming or streaming yourself, but it may also prove to be a factor for an early demise (as well as for quick justice for the culprits). Prentis Robinson was just leaving the police station where he filed a complaint about a stolen cellphone. The man was live streaming his way back home using a different phone mounted on a selfie stick, when a stranger suddenly appeared. Prentis hailed him and said he was “on live,” but instead of answering, the man shot the streamer dead and ran away.
