Teen gangs in Liverpool are using the YouTube video-sharing web site to flaunt their guns, cars and violent lifestyle, British police said on Friday as they investigate the murder of an 11-year-old boy by suspected gang members, according to an AFP report.
Rhys Jones was shot and killed as he returned home from soccer practice in the upscale Croxeth Park section of the city. Police say that several arrests have been made in connection to the killing, but are still looking for the actual shooter.
In clips posted on YouTube, gangs from the neighborhood can be seen pointing a gun to the camera. A bloodied victim can be seen in another clip.
