Tuesday night, at least two people have been killed and one other was injured in a shooting in Kenosha, Wisconsin, during widespread chaos and looting following the police shooting of Jacob Blake, police said.
Gunfire was heard outside a car dealership near 63rd Street and Sheridan Road right before midnight, according to a statement posted to Twitter Wednesday morning by the Kenosha Police department.
David Beth, the Kenosha County Sheriff, told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that one individual was shot in the head and another in the chest. As of early Wednesday morning no one had been taken into custody, however, Beth said that authorities had identified at least one person involved thanks to social media footage of the incident.
“I feel very confident we’ll have him in a very short time,” he said.
This is what’s going to happen now whenever a black person is shot by police, regardless of the facts. It’s what Democrat leaders in blue cities have allowed to happen, and it’s not going to stop until they get their act together, or the good people of those jurisdictions vote the Democrats out of office. Meanwhile, countless lives are being changed forever and not in a good way.
In a series of videos from the shooting, it seems a bunch of men had surrounded another man carrying a semi-automatic weapon. The man with the gun was lying on the ground when he began firing at the crowd around him.
“He shot him!” witnesses could be heard repeatedly saying. The gunman is seen firing about 15 shots in one video.
When the shooting stopped, a man could be seen on video taking off his shirt and bending down to help the victim, who at that point was on the ground.
Others additionally ran towards the victim as people screamed for help, the video reveals.
“Call 911 — he’s down!” another person screams. “We need a medic,” another yells.
Photos show the victim lying on the ground with witnesses trying to use a t-shirt to apply pressure to the side of his head.
Another man seems to get shot in the arm in the middle of a street shown in a separate video. Nobody yet knows if the two shootings were related.
“F–k, I need a medic!” the man cries out, according to live-stream footage posted to social media.
The man tells a number of people who came to his aid that he was carrying a tourniquet and, through audio of the incident, it seems they administered the device.
Folks, this could have been stopped at the beginning, but the Democrats in our country are now hell bent on allowing the anarchists and rioters to take over whole sections of their cities. I sincerely hope when the politicians who run these cities come up for reelection that their constituents remember they let this happen to them, their neighborhoods, and their cities.
