A police shooting in Wisconsin left a Black man hospitalized and in serious condition on Sunday evening (August 24), leading crowds to gather and later protest at the scene.
The demonstrations add to the anger against police brutality and racism boiling across the United States since the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis in May.
Clyde McLemore, who local TV identified as part of a nearby chapter of Black Lives Matter, spoke at the scene:
"It goes back to the Emmitt Tills. We're tired of it. Rodney King. We're tired of it. And right now, this is the wrong generation that this is happening to. The frustration is boiling to the top and we're sick and tired."
Police in the town of Kenosha said Sunday's shooting took place at around 5 p.m. local time as officers were responding to what they called a "domestic incident".
A graphic video circulating on social media allegedly shows the man walking towards a car followed by two officers, with one of them shooting him as he opens the car door.
Police say the victim was immediately taken to a hospital.
They offered no explanation as to what led to the shooting, but said the shooting will be investigated by the Wisconsin Department of Justice.
According to U.S. media reports, multiple fires were set at the scene by a crowd of more than 60 protesters.
