The two deaths, in fact, were caused by a 17-year-old from Antioch (Illinois), Kyle Rittenhouse, who is now in custody. The boy refused to explain the reasons that led him to shoot a 26 year old and a 36 year old. Given the situation, the governor of Wisconsin has declared a state of emergency and has deployed another 500 agents of the State National Guard, in reinforcement to another 250 already present on the spot, to support the local police department. US President Donald Trump has also announced the sending of reinforcements, reiterating the need to avoid violence and looting to restore "law and order", a slogan created on the occasion of the demonstrations after George Floyd's death.

… TODAY, I will be sending federal law enforcement and the National Guard to Kenosha, WI to restore LAW and ORDER!
