Three men have been seriously injured in a shooting that was broadcast live on Facebook.

Police said that one of the three men found shot in a car in Virginia on Tuesday evening was broadcasting live video to Facebook when the shooting occurred.

A Facebook Live video was posted on Tuesday evening showing three men sitting in a car, smoking and listening to music.

About five-and-a-half minutes into the video, gunshots can be heard. At least 30 rounds are fired over 22 seconds. The camera then falls to the floor.

Two 27-year-old men and a 29-year-old were taken to a Sentara Norfolk General Hospital with "significant injuries". Two of the men are recovering well but one remains in critical condition.
