Violence and protests erupted in Wisconsin overnight after a man was fatally shot by police during a foot chase, NBC News reported.
Police said the 23-year-old victim, who has not been identified, was armed with a handgun and shot dead by an officer after fleeing a traffic stop on Milwaukee's north side Saturday afternoon.
Hours later angry crowds took to the streets, smashing a police car and setting fire to another. A gas station and auto-parts store were also set alight. Police said gunshots were heard and an officer was injured by a flying brick.
Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett pleaded for calm at an early morning news conference, asking residents to "do everything" to help restore order.
"If you love your son, if you love your daughter, text them, call them, pull them by the ears and get 'em home," he said.
