The shootings took place on Sheridan Road in Kenosha near the Froedtert South Hospital. Anyone with information is asked to call the Kenosha Police Department at 262-605-5203.
The FBI is working with the sheriff’s department on the investigation. Protesters were in the streets for a third night, in response to the shooting of Jacob Blake, a 29-year-old Black man, by a Kenosha police officer on Sunday.
