(CNN)Two people are dead and a third was injured in Kenosha, Wisconsin, following a shooting late Tuesday night, police said.The shooting happened amid the third night of protests over the police shooting of 29-year-old Jacob Blake on Sunday evening.On Tuesday, officers responded to reports of multiple gunshot victims around 11:45 p.m., the Kenosha Police Department said in a news release early Wednesday.The person injured was taken to the hospital with “serious, but non-life threatening injuries,” police said.An investigation into the shooting is ongoing and the names and ages of the victims are still being determined, according to the release.Kenosha County Sheriff David Beth told The New York Times his office is investigating whether the shooting resulted from a conflict between demonstrators and a group of men with weapons who were protecting businesses.CNN has reached out to the Kenosha Police Department and the Kenosha County Sheriff’s Office.Protests in Kenosha have been ongoing since Blake’s shooting. Wisconsin’s governor declared a state of emergency Tuesday after cars and buildings were set ablaze and called in 250 members of the National Guard to assist. Blake remains in the hospital but his family says he is paralyzed from the waist down. A family attorney said it would take a “miracle” for Blake to ever walk again.
The coroner said Kenneth W. Miller, Jr., of Salem Township, attempted to clear a table top jump when he came up short and became separated from the vehicle.
Miller was taken to a nearby hospital where he died of his injuries.
The coroner said Miller was using a helmet and proper protective gear.
Police said the 1-year-old suffered a gunshot wound to the head.
According to a press release from Pittsburgh Public Safety, police transported the child to the hospital. The press release said, “With a police sergeant driving, two police officers held the baby in the backseat and worked to control the bleeding. The child arrived at the hospital in critical condition.”
The child later died of his injuries.
According to investigators, the shots were fired outside and traveled through a window and then two walls before hitting the child.
No arrests have been announced.
Early Tuesday morning, Mayor Bill Peduto tweeted about the shooting, writing, “Senseless gun violence must end. Another innocent life has been stolen. We will work endlessly to find the actor and hold them accountable for this horrific crime.”
The Allegheny County Medical Examiner today ruled the death of Tionna Highsmith a homicide.
Highsmith was shot and paralyzed in 2005 when she was caught in the crossfire of a shootout during a church festival in Brighton Heights. She was found deceased in her apartment in January. Highsmith was 29.
The Pittsburgh Bureau of Police continue to investigate this senseless act of violence that led to the death of an innocent person.
Anyone with any information on this case is urged to call Violent Crime Unit detectives at (412) 323-7161.
