Three people have been killed and one injured during the third night of unrest in the US city of Kenosha, sparked by the police shooting of a black man.

In Kenosha, the third night of protests over the shooting of Mr. Blake stretched into the early morning hours of Wednesday, after demonstrators clashed with law enforcement officials near the county courthouse downtown.

Tuesday evening was spent in a shifting, hourslong standoff between the police and protesters. Protesters assembled outside a newly erected metal barrier protecting the courthouse and threw water bottles, rocks and fireworks at the police.

The police responded with tear gas and rubber bullets, repeatedly warning the crowd through a bullhorn that they were violating the city curfew of 8 p.m. and risking arrest. The crowd was eventually forced out of the park with tear gas and onto city streets, where the standoff continued.

People running through the streets as gunshots ring out, and wounded men on the ground.

Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers said on Tuesday he was sending more National Guard troops to the city amid the unrest.
