What happened in Kenosha?

On August 25 crowds in Kenosha gathered for a third night to protest the shooting of Jacob Blake, who was paralysed from the waist down following Sunday night’s shooting.

According to witnesses at the scene, clashes between demonstrators and a gang of armed white men guarding a petrol station - some of whom were wearing body armour - became increasingly heated.

Police had used tear gas and rubber bullets in an attempt to disperse the two groups.

At 11.45pm local time Kenosha police revealed "reports of shots being fired and multiple gunshot victims".

A statement from the police department stated: "the shooting resulted in two fatalities and a third gunshot victim was transported to a hospital with serious, but non-life threatening injuries.”

Video of chaotic scenes in the Wisconsin city began surfacing on social media, appearing to show the shooting taking place.

In one clip the gunman can be seen being chased down by protestors before gunshots ring out. Other footage shows armed men standing outside businesses they claim they are trying to protect.

Following the shooting crowds dispersed in the city.

On Wednesday night Kyle Rittenhouse was arrested and charged with first-degree intentional homicide.
