Several people shot during third night of unrest in Kenosha

Several people were shot in Wisconsin Tuesday night on the third night of violent protests over the police shooting of Jacob Blake.

The gunfire rang out around midnight near 63rd Street and Sheridan Road in Kenosha, the Kenosha News reported. An officer told the outlet “lots of people shot.”

A portion of a shooting that occurred outside of an auto body shop was caught on camera and posted to social media.

“He shot him!” witnesses could be heard repeatedly saying. About 12 shots could be heard on the recording.

After the gunfire stopped, a man in the video could be seen taking off his shirt and bending down to assist the victim, who was on the ground near several cars.

Others also ran toward the victim as people screamed for help, the video shows.

“Call 911 — he’s down!” another person screams. “We need a medic,” another yells.

A separate video shows the victim laying on the concrete with witnesses using a t-shirt to apply pressure to the side of his head.

Another man appears to get shot in the arm in the middle of a street. It’s unclear if the two shootings were related.

“F–k, I need a medic!” the man wails, according to live-stream footage posted to social media.

The man tells several people who came to his aid that he was carrying a tourniquet and, through audio of the incident, it appears they administered the device.

Other details about the shootings were not immediately available.
