MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

A shooting victim arrived on a Whitehaven front porch pleading for help and the entire thing was captured on Facebook Live.

Although the video is hard to make out, one thing is very clear--it's scary.

"Oh my God y'all, I'm so scared. I don't know what to do," the Facebook user said. "He was beating on our window saying 'help, please' and somebody had shot him."

The user said they were scared to open the door. 

According to police, the 37-year-old man was shot and carjacked early Monday morning near the Graceland Manor apartments.

The shooting actually happened by the apartments and the man made his way to a home on Delsa Circle to ask for help. 

Yvonne Tate, a resident in the area, said she saw the police cars on Delsa Circle.

"It's scary. Things like that happening in your neighborhood," Tate said.

She has concerns about the vacant apartments in the area that she said serve as a haven for drugs.

"I couldn't understand why anybody was over there, but all of this vacant buildings like that they need to be torn down," Tate said.

Police have not released the name of the victim and there is no word on his condition.

No arrests have been made in this case.
