Investigators have the Facebook video and the suspected gunwoman has been identified, although she remains at large, police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said.

He called the shooting a “domestic-related incident between two individuals that know each other” and said officers do not believe there is any threat to the public.

Facebook Live allows users to film themselves and broadcast live to their friends on the social network.
