According to reports, the police where called to 40th St. & 28th Ave. in response to a domestic incident in Kenosha. It’s not clear how the situation escalated to Wisconsin police shooting a black man entering his car.
With all the tension going on around America due to social injustice, another situation like this is the worst thing that could happen. Things could get bad real fast in Kenosha with emotions running high from people who are fed up with hearing stories of minorities being shot by cops.
Everyone stay safe. No matter how you feel about this situation, we should all be hoping the gunshot victim can pull through.
