The Kenosha County Sheriff's Department has issued another curfew for the county that goes into effect at 7 p.m., an hour earlier than the previous nights. The curfew is in place until Sunday.

Kenosha County Sheriff David Beth announced the curfew at a press conference on Wednesday afternoon.

The curfew comes after another night of violent unrest in the city, following the police shooting of Jacob Blake. The curfew is in place for the area east of I-94.

On Tuesday, two people were shot and killed. A 17-year-old Antioch, Ill. teen was arrested and charged with first-degree intentional homicide.
