Two people killed, and one was injured just before midnight on Tuesday in the area of 63rd Street and Sheridan Road, Kenosha police said. They are currently looking for the shooter.
Kenosha County Sheriff David Beth told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that one victim had been shot in the head and another in the chest. The third person suffered non-life-threatening injuries. The victims’ identities have not been released.
Video of the footage, verified by NBC News has been circulated through social media. It shows a man with a long gun sitting in the middle of a street aiming a gun at people who were running along the road.
Beth said he believed at least one person would be taken into custody soon based on video footage police have reviewed. He said,
I feel very confident we’ll have him in a very short time.
The shooting came on the third night of protests in Kenosha after footage was posted of a Kenosha police officer shooting a Jacob Blake, an unarmed black man in the back seven times.
