The protests erupted following the police shooting of Jacob Blake earlier this week.

Beth said that "one was a fatal shooting, two were injured", but he's not sure if there was more than one shooter.

At a news conference later in the day, Blake's parents expressed anguish over the shooting while decrying two nights of looting, vandalism and arson that overshadowed peaceful street protests.

Three of his young sons inside the automobile - aged 3, 5 and 8 - witnessed their father being gunned down, according to civil rights attorney Ben Crump, who represents the Blake family.

Jacob Blake's sister Letetra Widman added: "I'm not sad".

Yet another video showed a man with a severe arm wound sitting on the ground and being aided by an armed man as police approached.

CNN has reached out to the Kenosha Police Department and the Kenosha County Sheriff's Office.

"But my son matters".

"They shot my son seven times, like he didn't matter", Mr Blake said, struggling to hold back tears.

"It's going to take a miracle for Jacob Blake Jr.to ever walk again", Mr Crump said.

The legal team plans to file a civil lawsuit against the police department over the shooting.

The shooting broke out shortly before midnight, killing two people and wounding a third who was expected to survive, the Kenosha police department said in a statement. The officers involved have not been named.

With hundreds of protesters marching for a third night Tuesday - and at least one small group of mainly white, heavily armed men vowing to protect property - her call for healing took on greater urgency.

Police then used armoured vehicles and officers with shields pushed back the crowd when protesters ignored warnings to leave a nearby park.

Officials, blaming outside agitators or much of the lawlessness surrounding protests, said some three dozen fires were set on Monday night, mostly in an uptown, predominantly minority neighborhood where numerous businesses were burned.

"We can not allow the cycle of systemic racism and injustice to continue", said Mr Evers, who is facing mounting pressure from Republicans over his handling of the unrest.

"Do you understand what is going to happen when we fall - because a house that is against each other can not stand".

Blake's father, who has the same name, said Tuesday that his son is paralyzed from the waist down.

She said the first thing her son said to her when she saw him was he was sorry.

"F-k, I need a medic!" the man says as he screams in pain in another video clip shared on the micro-blogging platform showing the extent of damage done to the man's arm.

"'I want to be with my children, and I don't think I'll walk again'".

Blake was shot multiple times in the back on Sunday after he was walking away from the police to enter his auto.

The injured man was helped to his feet by the officers.

Lawyers for Mr Blake said he had been trying to "de-escalate a domestic incident".

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.

Blake underwent another round of lengthy surgery on Tuesday to stabilize his spine with rods and screws, and it may take days or weeks to determine the extent of the damage, Patrick Salvi Sr., a lawyer for Blake's family, told CNN on Wednesday.
