Three people were shot overnight in Kenosha, Wisc., after violence erupted during the third straight night of rioting and looting in response to the police shooting of Jacob Blake. Two of those shot have died, according to the City of Kenosha Police Department, and a third was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Antifa and BLM comrades tended to the man who had been shot, yelling, “Call the police, call the police!”A video from there shows a horrific wound on the guy's arm. I haven't seen stuff like that since I stopped deer hunting. Definitely a high velocity round.
The riots are anti-police and the groups involved have been calling for abolishing the police.
Julio Rosas of our sister site Townhall captured video of what appears to be the second shooting. Rifle shots could be heard ringing out.
