One person was shot dead and another two were injured in the US city of Kenosha on Tuesday night, media reports revealed. Several groups clashed during protests over the police shooting of yet another black man post-George Floyd’s case.
Video posted online showed people running through the streets of Kenosha, Wisconsin, as gunshots were fired, while wounded men were lying on the ground.
“Three people had been shot, and one was killed,” Sheriff David Beth of Kenosha County said, according to the New York Times.
The violence turned worse as hundreds of protesters marched for consecutively on the third night in a rage after Jacob Blake, a black man was seen in the video being shot up to seven times at point-blank range by a white Kenosha police officer on Sunday.
Blake was trying to get into his car, with his three children inside it, when he was shot.
