The detection of GW170817 during O2 made multi-messenger astronomy with gravitational waves a reality. A challenge for low-latency searches is to rapidly estimate the probabilities of a candidate event source to contain neutron star or black hole components. This source classification enable observatories to prioritize followup searches for electromagnetic or neutrino counterparts. We present a chirp mass based Rapid Source Classification method developed for PyCBC Live during O3.
