Antioch is about 15 miles from Kenosha, which has seen three straight nights of unrest since the police shooting of a Black man, Jacob Blake.
Two people were killed Tuesday night in a possible vigilante attack carried out by a young white man who was caught on cellphone video opening fire in the middle of the street with a semi-automatic rifle.
In a statement, Kenosha police said the shooting happened near 63rd St. and Sheridan Road around 11:45 p.m. Authorities said a third victim was taken to the hospital for serious, but non-life threatening injuries.
