The woman who allegedly pulled a trigger in a shocking Facebook Live video has turned herself in. Labritney Austin, 29, of University Park, Chicago turned herself in on Wednesday, one day after she allegedly shot a 27-year-old woman in the arm.

A teen in Stockton, California was arrested in July for allegedly driving under the influence and causing a crash that killed her sister.
