Protestors have been taking to the streets in another American town Sunday, Monday and into early Tuesday morning after video surfaced of police shooting an unarmed Black man.

Police again have fired tear gas at hundreds of protesters who defied a curfew, threw bottles and shot fireworks at law enforcement guarding the courthouse.

This time, the town is Kenosha, Wisconsin, which has about 100,000 people and sits just south of Milwaukee.

The city is now trying to quell racial tension after police were caught on camera shooting 29-year-old Jacob Blake in the back multiple times.

Blake was unarmed, apparently, and was directed by police to get into a car before being shot in the back.

Blake has been in serious condition while the officers are now on administrative leave, which is standard protocol, according to the Associated Press.

Witnesses said Blake was trying to break up a fight between two women, the Kenosha News reported.

Upset residents have clashed with police in several nights of protests that resulted in heavy damage throughout town.

The shooting drew condemnation Gov. Tony Evers, who also called out 125 members of the National Guard on Monday after protesters set cars on fire, smashed windows and clashed with officers in riot gear the previous night.

Here are some photos of the aftermath, from Getty Images.
