On Wednesday, the Kenosha Police Department gave a press conference about the shooting by an apparent militiaman that left two protesters dead, saying that "everyone involved was out after curfew" and confirming that "a 17-year-old individual" was "involved" in "the use of firearms."
Commenters on social media were not satisfied with the police's comments on the incident.
