At least two people were killed after a “young White man” was shown on video shooting protesters who were demonstrating Tuesday night against the police shooting of an unarmed Black man just days earlier in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

Bystanders recorded the violence during the third night of protests over Kenosha police shooting Jacob Blake multiple times in the back at point-blank range on Sunday. As of Wednesday morning, the suspect — described by the Washington Post as “a young White man carrying a rifle” — remained at large.

One of the graphic videos from Tuesday night’s shooting that was circulating on social media showed a victim claim he had been shot in the head. It was unclear if that person was one of the people who died.

Blake was shot multiple times in the back on Sunday after he was walking away from the police to enter his car. The police were initially called to the scene because of a “domestic disturbance.” However, witnesses say Blake wasn’t involved. Blake’s uncle, Justin Blake, told CNN, “It is outrageous. Who was he threatening? He had a tank top and shorts on. He had no weapon. He was going back to the car because the children needed to be checked on.” Blake survived the shooting, however, his father said he was left paralyzed and with “eight holes” in him, according to the Chicago Sun Times.

Tuesday night was the second time in as many nights that a white man was reported to have shot at people protesting police violence.

A protester was shot Monday night in Bedford County, Pennsylvania, as a group of activists was walking from Milwaukee to Washington D.C. to participate in the “Get Off Our Necks” Commitment March against police brutality on Friday, the 57th anniversary of the legendary March on Washington when the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his historic “I Have A Dream Speech.” Activist Frank Nitty posted a Facebook live video claiming that “some white man came out and started shooting at us.”

However, no one died in the Pennsylvania shooting, unlike in Wisconsin Tuesday night.
