Two people were shot dead on Tuesday night in the United States city of Kenosha, police said, as groups clashed during protests over the shooting of a black man.
Jacob Blake, 29, was shot several times opening the door of his auto in Kenosha.
Blake's family said on Tuesday that he was left paralysed by the attack and was fighting for his life. "I don't think he made it".
Three of the Mr Blake's sons - aged three, five and eight - were in the vehicle at the time of the shooting, Mr Crump said.
The man puts up his hands and walks toward the squad cars, with someone in the crowd yelling at police that the man had just shot someone, but several of the cars drive past him toward the people who had been shot.
Video captured by a neighbour shows Mr Blake walking towards the driver's side door of his SUV, away from two officers who were pointing guns at his back. "He's a human being and he matters", said Blake's father, who is also named Jacob Blake. "But my son matters".
Police have said little about what happened, other than that they were responding to a domestic dispute.
CNN has reached out to the Kenosha Police Department and the Kenosha County Sheriff's Office.
Three of his young sons were in the auto, witnesses said. He also said that there was no indication that Blake was carrying any weapons.
A state of emergency had been declared in Wisconsin after protests erupted on Sunday with demonstrators destroying over 30 businesses and setting buildings alight.
Police and protesters skirmished last night and early today.
Police fired tear gas for a third night Tuesday to disperse protesters who had gathered outside Kenosha's courthouse, where some shook a protective fence and threw water bottles and fireworks at officers lined up behind it. Police then used armored vehicles and officers with shields pushed back the crowd when protesters ignored warnings to leave a nearby park. Other shots were heard in the background.
Mr Blake's shooting comes as the U.S. grapples with the treatment of African-Americans at the hands of law enforcement, as well as wider questions about racism in society, since the death in police custody in Minneapolis of another black man, George Floyd, in May. So far it is unclear who called the police, how many officers were involved, and what happened before the shooting.
An investigation into the shooting is ongoing and the names and ages of the victims are still being determined, according to the release.
"We can not allow the cycle of systemic racism and injustice to continue", said Evers, who is facing mounting pressure from Republicans over his handling of the unrest.
Blake's father told the Chicago Sun-Times that his son had eight holes in his body.
"Do you understand what is going to happen when we fall - because a house that is against each other can not stand".
Beth told the Journal Sentinel that armed people had been patrolling the city's streets in recent nights, but he did not know if the gunman was among them.
As he opens the door and leans into the auto, one officer can be seen grabbing his shirt and opening fire. Mr Blake's grandfather, also called Jacob, was a pastor at a church in Evanston, and a local leader in the civil rights movement.
