WATCH: Kenosha Residents Fire Warning Shots as Rioters Threaten Neighborhoods

•, Dylan Gwinn

Shortly after midnight, a group of demonstrators got in their cars and traveled to a residential neighborhood where they parked in a grassy area across from a row of houses. As they began exiting their vehicles, a homeowner emerged from his house and began firing warning shots at the rioters.

The would-be rioters began to flee as the man fired several more shots. In another incident, a group of rioters attacked and burned several local businesses in an area near a residential neighborhood. As the rioters moved through the area, several shots  rang out from a man who appeared to be a business owner.

Not all the rioting was directed at local businesses or residential neighborhoods. The Kenosha Courthouse, which was guarded by the Wisconsin National Guard, came under sustained attack by hundreds of rioters who hurled bottles and hot fireworks at them.
