Two people were killed and one injured amid gunfire overnight in Kenosha, Wis. It was the third night of angry protests in the small Midwestern city over the police shooting of Jacob Blake, a Black man. Blake, who was apparently shot from behind as his children watched, is now paralyzed.

Police on Wednesday arrested a juvenile in the slayings of two people during the protests. Kyle Rittenhouse, 17, was charged in Antioch, Ill., with first degree intentional homicide. The city is 21 miles from Kenosha, across the state line.
