One person shot in Milwaukee during 2nd night of skirmishes

The Chicago Sun-Times reports:
Police said one person was shot at a Milwaukee protest on Sunday and officers used an armored vehicle to retrieve the injured victim and take the person to a hospital, as tense skirmishes erupted for a second night following the police shooting of a black man.

About two dozen officers in riot gear confronted about 150 people who blocked an intersection near where the fatal shooting occurred Saturday afternoon, and more arrived. Police moved in to try to disperse the crowd and warned of arrests after protesters threw bottles and rocks at police.
