KENOSHA, Wis. — Authorities say two people were killed and another was wounded during a third night of unrest in Kenosha, Wisconsin, following last weekend’s police shooting of a Black man, Jacob Blake.

In a statement, Kenosha police say the shooting happened near 63rd St. and Sheridan Road around 11:45 p.m. Authorities say a third victim was taken to the hospital for serious, but non-life threatening injuries.

Police have not arrested a suspect yet, but witnesses reported seeing a man carrying a rifle running from the scene.

Kenosha County Sheriff David Beth told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that authorities hadn’t detained anyone in the shootings, but that police reviewed video of what happened and he was confident a man would be arrested soon. He also mentioned that an armed “militia” has been patrolling Kenosha in recent nights, but that he didn’t know if the alleged shooter was among them.
