(Worthy News) - For a second night, protests in Milwaukee over the police shooting of an armed African-American man turned violent as demonstrators fired shots and hurled objects, injuring at least two people early Monday, police said.
One victim was shot during the Monday unrest and rushed to a hospital in an armored vehicle. A police officer was injured and also taken to the hospital after a rock broke the windshield of a squad car, according to Milwaukee Police.
The death of Sylville Smith, 23, triggered unrest hours after his killing on Saturday as protesters torched six businesses, including a gas station, burned cars and threw rocks at officers. During the first night of protests, four officers were injured and 17 people were arrested, Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett said. [ Source ]
