The violence has been ongoing but turned deadly early this morning when a confrontation between demonstrators and a group of men armed with guns. This occurred at protests and riots over the police shooting of Jacob Blake, in which one person was injured and two were killed.
The city has seen several nights of rioting, following the police shooting of a black man, Jacob Blake. A curfew was imposed on Tuesday night and police ordered residents to stay off the streets, according to a report by RT. National Guard troops were also deployed to the Kenosha’s courthouse for a second night after Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers signed an executive order doubling the Guard’s presence in the city from 125 to 250 personnel.
