Wisconsin Governor calls for Michigan National Guard troops in Kenosha

17-year-old arrested in connection to fatal shooting at Jacob Blake protest in Kenosha

Two dead as gunfire erupts at Wisconsin protests over shooting of Black man

After a black man was shot seven times in the back by a police officer in Kenosha, Wisconsin, on Sunday, 23 August, people angry about police violence began protesting.

A police officer stands in the street as protesters gather over the Sunday shooting of Jacob Blake.

The protests have seen some property destroyed, prompting some citizens to take to the streets armed with rifles and other guns.

The incident sparked three nights of civil unrest that has included a wave of arson, widespread vandalism and a separate deadly shooting that claimed two lives in Kenosha, a city of about 100,000 residents on Lake Michigan, 40 miles south of Milwaukee. Under federal - as well as IL and Wisconsin state laws - no person under the age of 18 is allowed to own a gun.

On Tuesday night, a white, 17-year-old self-styled militia member shot three people, killing two, authorities said.

This video was recorded after the first shooting.

A Facebook photo of him was framed with the "Blue Lives Matter" logo - a staunchly pro-police movement that often clashes with Black Lives Matter supporters.

Too young to own a weapon under IL law, Rittenhouse was fascinated by guns, taking them apart and putting them together and practicing target shooting at home. Blake then "walked around his vehicle, opened the driver's side door, and leaned forward" and that's when Sheskey opened fire.

Earlier in the night, Mr Rittenhouse was interviewed by conservative media outlet The Daily Caller while standing outside a boarded-up building.

"I think the people that were here last night were Kenosha's people", Beth said. If someone is hurt, I'm running into harm's way. That's why I have my rifle; I've gotta protect myself obviously.

Tennis star Naomi Osaka also withdrew from her semi-final at the Western and Southern Open in NY, scheduled for Thursday, saying "before I am an athlete, I am a black woman".

Jets wide receiver Jamison Crowder also talked about a past experience with police as a Black man. Crowder said he has been pulled over because of the auto he was driving.

The rest were permitted to travel back to NY , where it's conceivable they could do some work this weekend, depending on testing. The team was slated to play the Marlins in Miami last Thursday, but that game was postponed due to the Mets' positives tests.


Subsequent footage shows an armed man walking towards police vehicles with his arms raised in the air.

During a Wednesday news conference, Kenosha Police Chief Daniel Miskinis said the shooting may not have happened if demonstrators and the accused gunman had obeyed the city's newly imposed 8 p.m. curfew. "I'm not going to make a great deal of it, but the point is the curfew's in place to protect", he said. Had persons not been out involved in violation of that, perhaps the situation that unfolded would not have happened...

After the shootings, Mr Rittenhouse walked calmly away from the fleeing crowd towards police. His posts indicate he is extremely pro-police and appears to have been a former police explorer, a career-oriented program for youth considering a career in law enforcement.

After a shooting that left a Black man, Tony Robinson, dead in Madison, Wisconsin, five years ago, the Wisconsin Professional Police Association released information ahead of official investigations to counter rumors and speculation on social media, said executive director Jim Palmer.

Other Facebook posts regularly referenced police officers who died in the line of duty. According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, a post by the now-removed account attempted to rally "patriots willing to take up arms and defend [our] City tonight from the evil thugs".

It warned law enforcement members they would be "outnumbered", the newspaper reported.
