Numerous shootings in #Kenosha independents @CjHalliburton and Regg Inkagnedo caught it all on tape.

An eye witness to the shooting claims that the shooters were part of the “boogaloo” group and were attempting to protect a store from being looted.

A second witness told me the same account off camera
That is what I thought I saw too but I had to confirm. Details can still change pic.twitter.com/3CnPtODX5o
The alleged shooters, according to BlazeTV journalist Elijah Shaffer, were attempting to defend the property of a car repair shop. The shop was, according to Shaffer, the property of a Black Lives Matter supporter. The there irony shouldn’t escape you. Shaffer captured the destruction of the property in a series of videos he uploaded to his Twitter account.
In the videos, rioters are shown systematically destroying nearly every vehicle on the property, first using bats to break the windows and then setting them on fire from the inside.

Rioters were quick to call on the police to help them, another irony given everything else taking place around them.

Rumors are another man was shot in the arm but I cannot confirm via another journalist
I was there when the shots were fired, they were aimed at the vehicle. I filmed the victim within seconds of being shot
