01:11Snapchat and Instagram were just ways to
01:13stay in touch with his besties and
01:15entertain them online when they couldn't
01:17be physically together and his family
01:19had a pretty big stay in it too Malachi
01:21grew up with two loving parents Shaniqua
01:24and Ernest and an older sister they
01:26cared about him more than anything in
01:28the world and they wanted him to be safe
01:30this also meant monitoring his social
01:33media as you probably know there are a
01:35lot of dangers online these days like
01:37predators and bullying so Malachi's
01:40parents spent a fair amount of time

01:43and looking through his accounts to make
01:45sure he wasn't talking to creepy
01:47strangers and the like they never
01:49expected the danger to be inside their
01:51home
01:54on Monday April 10 2017 Malachi's mom
01:58Shaniqua heard a scary noise coming from
02:00her son's room I heard a big boom
02:03I couldn't tell if it was a gunshot or
02:05what I just knew that it was something
02:07that that was wrong her daughter was
02:09also startled by the noise so the two
02:11quickly ran upstairs to Malachi's room
02:13to their shock this door was locked but
02:15he never locked his door Shaniqua yelled
02:17at Malachi to open the door ASAP but he
02:20was unresponsive it wasn't like him to
02:23ignore his mom so Shaniqua knew she had
02:25to act fast we kicked in the door we
02:28found him just laying there in the pool
02:30of blood my daughter screamed and said
02:32ma
02:33um
02:34turned his phone off
02:36and as I proceeded to look at his phone
02:38he was on Instagram live
02:41yeah imagine seeing your son like this
02:44then learning that dozens of others saw
02:47him take his life

03:07themselves their families are gun
03:08enthusiasts proudly displaying their
03:11guns in their homes and sometimes even
03:13taking their children to shoot ranges
03:15this wasn't the case for Malachi he'd
03:18grown up in a home where peace and love
03:20were glorified not violence to his
03:23family it didn't even make sense that
03:25Malachi would want to fool around with a
03:27gun in front of his friends he'd never
03:29spoken about guns Shaniqua was on the
03:32phone with the Emergency Services when
03:34she heard a lot of noise coming from
03:35outside her home when she looked outside
03:37her window she saw around 50 kids in her

03:44were watching it on live that live in
03:46the area
03:47all these children watched as the
03:49paramedics arrived and rushed Malachi
03:51into the ambulance but within a few

05:13little bit of closure but these are
05:15murky Waters it's not like the boy

05:19control can a parent have over their
05:21kids social life so Malachi's family

06:33kids to the best to their ability it can
06:36happen to the best people the best ones
06:38that love their kids sadly it's
06:47teeth Malachi made headlines again after
06:50NBA legend Shaquille O'Neal offered to
06:52pay for his funeral he found out that
06:54Malachi's family couldn't afford to pay
06:56for a proper funeral so five days after
06:58Malachi's death Shaquille visited the
07:01hemphills Malachi's godmother shantiria
07:04said we just broke down and started
07:05crying because Malachi didn't have any
07:08insurance we weren't prepared to bury
07:10him this young we didn't have any
07:11insurance for him so to have that from
07:13Shaquille O'Neal it was a blessing and
07:16very touching and we appreciate
07:18everything he does for the community
07:19Shaquille responded no mother should
07:22have to go through this I can only
07:24imagine the pain that she and all of
07:27Malachi's family must be feeling I just
07:29wanted to do what I could to help them
07:32at such a terrible time nearly 200
07:34people walked the streets from Malachi
07:37the friends relatives and neighbors held
07:39a candlelit vigil held in his memory
07:41three days after his death Babs Middle
07:44School where Malachi Hemphill was a
07:45seventh grader even brought in
07:47counselors to help grieving children and
07:49they were right in doing so watching
07:51your friend himself in the head on
07:53camera Shirley leaves a dark stain
07:55forever but now all everyone could do
07:58was move forward and Malachi's Grandma
08:00Helen made it very clear what the focus
08:02should be he knows better than that it's
08:04too easy to get a gun you have the law
08:07that says that if you turn 18 and you
08:09have a good record you can go and get a
08:11gun you make it easy for them
08:13exactly why did a 13 year old have a gun
08:16to give Malachi in the first place and
08:19there was another worrying aspect why
08:22didn't any of the kids watching
08:23Malachi's live video intervene sooner
08:26why didn't they tell an adult about it
08:27Shaniqua spoke to NBC about this when
08:30you see someone on a live video playing
08:32with a gun don't take it for granted if
08:34that's your friend you tell somebody do
08:37something about it because this could
08:39have been prevented maybe that's the
08:41saddest part that it could have easily
08:43been prevented
08:45here's another sad twist Malachi is not
08:48alone just a quick scroll through
