Kenosha Mass Shooting Sees Three People Killed, Two in Critical Condition

Three people are dead and two others have been critically injured after a shooting at a home in Kenosha, Wisconsin, police said.

The Kenosha Police Department has yet to reveal details about what led up to the shooting on Tuesday night.

However, the police department said in a tweet that it "believes this to be an isolated incident with no threat to our community."

On Twitter, police also said the incident was not a "police involved shooting" and that no suspects were actively being sought.

We are not actively seeking any suspects. This was not a police involved shooting. Victims ages and identities are not being released at this time. A police presence remains on scene conducting investigative and evidence work.

"We can confirm that three are deceased. Two more victims were transported to hospitals, one via Flight For Life. Both are critical. KPD believes this to be an isolated incident with no threat to our community," the department said on Twitter.

The names and ages of the victims were not immediately released. "A police presence remains on scene conducting investigative and evidence work," police added in a second tweet.

The incident was reported to police at about 10.40 p.m. on Tuesday, the Kenosha News reported.

One wounded person was taken from the scene by Kenosha Fire Department paramedics to a high school, before a medical helicopter transported them to a hospital, according to the newspaper.

"We are not doing a canvass of the neighborhood," Kenosha Police Lt. Joe Nosalik told reporters. "We believe this is an isolated incident and we are not looking for a suspect right now. We do not believe there is any threat to the community."

Joyce Johnson, who has lived in the neighborhood near Lake Michigan for four years, said she had been out when she heard the blaring of multiple sirens from police responding to the scene.

"We have no problems down here at all. None whatsoever," she told the Kenosha News. "That's why it's so shocking, very shocking to see every police [squad] car in Kenosha here."

The Kenosha Police Department has been contacted for additional comment.

The shooting is at least the second Kenosha has seen this year that involves multiple fatalities. In April, a gunman open fire at a bar just north of Kenosha, leaving three people dead and others wounded.

Kenosha also made national headlines last summer after unrest erupted over the police shooting of Jacob Blake.

Kyle Rittenhouse, who was 17 at the time, was charged in connection with a shooting during the protest on August 25, 2020, where two people were killed and another was seriously injured. His trial is expected to begin next month.
