KENOSHA — A curfew in Kenosha County will be in place for the rest of the week, officials announced on Monday.

Kenosha Mayor John Antaramarian said the curfew would be in place for the rest of the week, but did not clarify if it would expire Saturday.

The curfew was extended through Tuesday, initially.


Protesters continued to gather in Kenosha following the police shooting of Jacob Blake on Aug. 23.

Blake was shot several times in the back by Kenosha Police Officer Rusten Sheskey.

Blake is currently recovering in a Milwaukee hospital. Sheskey, and two other officers, have been put on administrative leave pending the investigation, per policy.
