A 17-year-old has been arrested over a shooting in Kenosha, Wisconsin last night that left two protesters dead and another injured in a possible vigilante attack amid a wave of looting.

Kyle Rittenhouse was arrested on Wednesday afternoon in his hometown of Antioch, Illinois and charged with first degree intentional homicide.

The Antioch Police Department complaint says the teenager “fled the state of Wisconsin with the intent to avoid prosecution.”

Here’s what we reported earlier …

*Protests continued for the third night in a row following the horrific police shooting of an unarmed black father, Jacob Blake.

On Tuesday, many took the streets of Kenosha, Wisconsin, demanding justice for the 29-year-old who was shot eight times in the back by a cop after trying to break up a fight. The victim’s father says he is now paralyzed from the waist down.

During last night’s demonstrations, things turned violent as three people were shot; two fatally, with one injured, according to Kenosha County Sheriff David Beth. The third victim is said to be in stable condition with non-life threatening injuries.

According to witness accounts and video footage, police apparently let the man responsible for some or all of the shootings walk past them with a rifle over his shoulder as members of the crowd were yelling for him to be arrested because he had shot people.

The sheriff told the Journal Sentinel that armed people had been patrolling the city’s streets in recent nights, but he did not know if the gunman was among them.

“They’re a militia,” Beth said. “They’re like a vigilante group.”
