Bailey, a state senator from downstate Xenia, started live-streaming video at 11:44 a.m. Monday to his more than 111,000 Facebook followers from Skokie, where Independence Day festivities were canceled due to the tragedy in the nearby North Shore suburb. The shooting started at 10:14 a.m., authorities said.
