Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers declared a state of emergency Tuesday after cars and buildings were set ablaze. Evers also called in 250 members of the National Guard to assist.
Late Tuesday, Anadolu Agency photographer Tayfun Coskun captured a series of images that show a fight between an armed civilian and protesters.
CJ Halliburton was recording on Facebook Live during the protests when he heard gunshots in the distance down the street from where he was standing.
Halliburton ran in the direction of the gunshots with other demonstrators in an attempt to see what had happened. As he inches closer to a gathering crowd, several more gunshots can be heard in the video.
"He shot that guy in the stomach," Halliburton says in the video.
In the distance, a man can be heard yelling, "I need a medic," followed by another round of gunshots.
"People are getting shot all around us," Halliburton says in the video. "People are just getting shot everywhere guys."
