Kenosha Shooting- 1 Shot Dead and 2 Injured by an Armed Man during Protests

Aftermaths of Kenosha shooting leading to more chaos as on Wednesday an armed man with a long gun shocked the Kenosha after one person was killed and two others were injured during protests on Sheridan Road in the heart of Kenosha near the Froedert South hospital.

Police looking for the armed man, sprinting into the parking lot of Bert and Rudy's Auto Service at that intersection, carrying a long gun. Multiple gunshots are heard.

Social media footage appears to show at least three people were shot shortly before midnight, including near 63rd Street and Sheridan Road.

Kenosha County Sheriff David Beth said one victim was shot in the head and another in the chest late Tuesday, just before midnight. Beth didn’t know where the other person was shot, but video posted on social media showed someone had been shot in the arm.

No one has been apprehended, but Beth said he believed at least one person would be taken into custody soon based on video footage police have reviewed.

“I feel very confident we’ll have him in a very short time,” Beth said.

The shooting came on the third night of violent protests that have torn through Kenosha after a police officer shot Blake from behind at close range while he was getting in a vehicle. Since then, buildings have been burned, windows smashed out and stores looted.

“We’ve got a lot of resources that are helping us pull this stuff together,” Beth said of the shooting investigation.

A video, posted to Twitter by Shelby Talcott of the Daily Caller, shows a gunshot victim lying in the parking lot. The victim appeared to have been shot in the head and bystanders were applying pressure to the wound.

About 250 law enforcement officers and 250 National Guard members were on hand Tuesday night to quell the recent riots, he said.

Another video shows a man lying in the ground, who has been shot in the right arm,the wound appeared as a split in the arm.

 One of the victims walked into the hospital after he or she was injured, Beth said. Another was picked up by law enforcement.

The investigation of the latest shooting is being conducted by the Kenosha Police Department with the assistance of the FBI, Beth said.
