(CMR) An 18-year-old amputee, Renaldo Taylor, from North Side stabbed his step-father and live-streamed the entire episode on Instagram live. The videos are in wide circulation and have many shocked at the turn of events.
The videos have gone viral this evening and show the police officers attending the scene before the live was cut. Many viewers were shocked during the entire event which appears to have been recorded after the stabbing. There is a substantial amount of blood and the young man claims that his father was abusing him before the incident and how he had warned his mother about the tumultuous relationship before.
Persons familiar with the situation said that the young man had endured some alleged abuse in the home. Regardless, he has had a troubling number of years by most accounts. He had his leg partially amputated after a motorbike accident back in 2017 involving a police chase.
The young man is in police custody.
The condition of his father is said to be serious. This is a developing story and more information will be provided shortly.
