A curfew has been issued for the third straight night in Kenosha County, going into effect at 8 p.m Tuesday.

The curfew comes after unrest over the police shooting of Jacob Blake continued overnight Monday into Tuesday. Several businesses were damaged or burned down.

The curfew is for the area east of I-94 and will expire at 7 a.m. Wednesday.

Gov. Tony Evers said there would also be an increased presence of the Wisconsin National Guard in Kenosha.
