KENOSHA — All exit ramps on I-41 in Kenosha County have been closed for an undetermined amount of time, according to the Kenosha County Sheriff's Department.

This comes just before an 8 p.m. curfew is set to begin.

All of this is in response to protests that began last night after Jacob Blake was shot seven times in the back by a Kenosha Police officer Sunday evening.

Protests began shortly after that happened on Sunday and have continued all day Monday.

Civil unrest broke out late Sunday night. A car lot was set on fire, garbage trucks were set on fire, and multiple buildings were vandalized.

The National Guard has been deployed to Kenosha to help with anything that might happen.
