Another video shows an individual opening fire after allegedly being attacked by someone with a skateboard.
People appear to be hit and fall down as he shoots.
This as close and slow as you’re gonna find I think.

The riots in Kenosha began Sunday night after an officer-involved shooting of Jacob Blake. The Associated Press reported that an eyewitness to the incident, 22-year-old Raysean White, “said he saw Blake scuffling with three officers and heard them yell, ‘Drop the knife! Drop the knife!’ before the gunfire erupted. He said he didn’t see a knife in Blake’s hands.”
The Guardian reports that Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers (D) is calling state lawmakers to meet in a special session “to move forward with reforms to curb law enforcement misconduct.”
