Kenosha shooting: Two people are dead and a third injured after an overnight shooting, police say – CNN

(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.

Police: Johnstown woman charged after video shows ‘brutal attack’ of 12-year-old girl | WJAC

A Johnstown woman has been charged with felony aggravated assault after police say she filmed herself brutally attacking a 12-year-old girl. Authorities say 32-year-old Emily Sarver is facing charges related to aggravated assault, simple assault, recklessly endangering another person and corruption of minors. According to the Richland Township Police Department, the investigation began in Oct. 2019 when the girl reported the assault to her school nurse.

Police say the video of the attack confirmed the same details the girl described to investigators.

Sarver waited for the girl to enter the living room at which point she began beating the girl in the head and face with her hands and a wooden spoon for about seven minutes while berating her with vulgar language, the complaint says.

The video shows Sarver grab the girl by her hair, throw her on the ground and continue assaulting her, the complaint says.

Colorado Highway Crash: Fiery 28-Vehicle Pileup Closes I-70 Near Denver : NPR

The crash involved at least 24 cars and four semis. One of the trucks was carrying a flatbed full of lumber — which contributed to a large fire on the roadway.

Six people were taken to the hospital, including the driver of the semi. That driver, who sustained minor injuries, is now in police custody and is being charged with multiple counts of vehicular homicide, Countryman said. Police did not identify the driver, other than to say he’s not from Colorado.

Parts of I-70 remain closed Friday morning — and highway officials say it isn’t likely to open until sometime Saturday. The closure caused long delays in the morning commute, with investigators still combing the area, and workers trying to clean up debris in the eastbound lanes where the crash took place. Westbound lanes are also closed, with motorists using a detour to avoid a bridge where the greatest damage occurred.
