    A North Carolina man who spent his time trying to improve his neighborhood was shot to death on Monday while streaming on Facebook Live, authorities said.

    Prentis Robinson, 55, was gunned down roughly one block from police headquarters where he'd just stopped to report a stolen cell phone, Wingate Police Chief Donnie Gay told NBC News.

    Robinson's suspected killer, 65-year-old Douglas Cleveland Colson, surrendered to authorities Tuesday, Gay said. The lifelong Wingate resident has been arrested before. 

    In the footage, which Facebook has since removed but was viewed by NBC News, Robinson can be seen walking down a street in Wingate, south of Charlotte, with a cell phone attached to a selfie stick.
