3 shot, 2 dead in overnight Jacob Blake protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin

Protests following the police shooting of a Black man in Kenosha, Wisconsin, continued for a third night Tuesday into. Wednesday as police deployed tear gas, flash bangs and rubber bullets upon protesters and erected a fence around the local courthouse.

At least three people were shot during the protests overnight in Kenosha, some 40 miles south of Milwaukee, and two of the victims died from their injuries, according to the Kenosha Police Department. The third gunshot victim was taken to a hospital with "serious, but non-life-threatening injuries," police said.

The Kenosha Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation are still investigating what led to the shooting.

As curfew began in Kenosha at 8 p.m. local time, police could be heard warning people to move away from the Kenosha County Courthouse where demonstrators had gathered. A state of emergency was approved by the Kenosha Common Council on Tuesday afternoon, which will remain in place until

Friday, according to Milwaukee ABC affiliate WISN.

The protests over Blake's shooting haven't been confined to Wisconsin. In Georgia, Atlanta ABC affiliate WSB reported demonstrations turning violent Tuesday night when protesters threw fireworks at police officers and spray-painted a police precinct. Officers in riot gear ultimately dispersed the crowd, according to WSB.

During an emotional press conference in Kenosha on Tuesday afternoon, where Blake's mother, father and three sisters were in attendance, one of the family's attorneys, Patrick Salvi Jr., said Blake was shot seven times at point-blank range in the back. Salvi said at least one bullet tore through his spinal cord and other shots damaged his kidney, liver and arm.

Civil rights attorney Benjamin Crump, who's also representing Blake, said his client was attempting to de-escalate a domestic incident when police drew their pistols and stun guns on him. Crump said Blake was walking away to check on his children when police shot him.
