Two people were fatally shot and one was injured during the third night of protests in Kenosha over the police shooting of Jacob Blake, a 29-year-old Black man, police said early Wednesday.

Tuesday night's shooting took place near a gas station following a confrontation between protesters and men armed with guns who claimed to be guarding the gas station, the New York Times reported.

Kenosha police said officers responded to shots fired at around 11:45 p.m. Police did not release the names of the victims, but said a 26-year-old man from Silver Lake and a 36-year-old man from Kenosha had been killed. Another 26-year-old man who was shot was transported to a hospital with serious, but non-life-threatening injuries.
