VIDEO: Gunman shoots terrified girlfriend dead on Facebook Live

Rannita Williams and Jonathan Robinson

A terrified woman was shot dead by her boyfriend as she made a desperate plea to family and friends on Facebook Live, police said.

Rannita Williams, 27, was gunned down by Johnathan Robinson during the chilling broadcast on Thursday.

Robinson, 36, was heard saying "You wanna be famous? I'm gonna make you famous," before opening fire on the mum-of-three.

Williams, known affectionately as 'Nunu', was taken to hospital but later died of her injuries.

Nunu began the horrifying livestream shortly before 11am on Thursday morning.

A man, identified as her partner Robinson, can be seen in the background, pacing back and forth while muttering about "making people famous".

The man orders Nunu to apologise, to which she addresses the camera and says: "Hey y'all, this is Nunu...I didn't have any business doing all that. My page been blocked."

Robinson is heard shouting: "Everybody wanna be famous, let's be famous today" before allegedly opening fire on police officers, who had surrounded the house in Shreveport, Louisiana.

The petrified young woman screams "Stop Johnathan" before the phone falls to the floor.

The shadow of a rifle is seen on the ceiling before four more gunshots are heard. The man is heard to say: "Now b****, game over. Game over b****."

Suspect Robinson barricaded himself inside the property, in the Caddo Heights neighbourhood, before surrendering, police said.

Nunu and a police officer were shot during the incident.

The young mother was taken to University Health Hospital with life-threatening injuries. Sadly, she passed away a short time later.

Robinson was arrested on suspicion of second-degree murder and possession of a firearm.

Aunt Sharon Brown spoke of the family's shock as she paid tribute to her niece.

She told KTBS: "NuNu was my baby, she's so sweet she loves her kids. She just came from Vegas from New York with her oldest daughter. So, she loved her kids and her kids, when they find out that’s the hardest part of the whole thing. When the kids find out."
