Police in Kenosha, Wisconsin, said early Wednesday that two people had been shot and killed and a third injured as protests continued over police brutality and the shooting of Jacob Blake.
One video posted to social media shows a chaotic scene where multiple gunshots can be heard. In it, a man is jogging down the middle of a street carrying a long gun.

A person can be heard on the video asking, “What he do?”
“He shot someone,” another person answers.
Moments later, the man with the gun falls to the ground, someone yells “Get his a**!”
The man then turns on his backside and hoists the gun as people run at him, including one person who jumps and kicks at him.
The man then appears to start shooting at the people around him.
One man is shot at close range, stumbles off and falls to the ground. A second man appears to be shot in the arm or shoulder and retreats.
Cries of “Medic! Medic!” can be heard.
Later in the footage, the gunman approaches law enforcement with his arms raised above his head, but no one stops or apprehends him before the video cuts off.
Kyle Rittenhouse, 17, faces a first-degree intentional homicide charge in Kenosha County. He is now jailed in Lake County, Illinois, and has been charged there as a fugitive from justice. He will appear for extradition hearing on Friday.
