Protests in Milwaukee following the police shooting of an armed African American man intensified as demonstrators reportedly fired shots and hurled objects, injuring at least two people early Monday, according to police.

One victim was shot during the Monday unrest and rushed to a hospital in an armored vehicle. A police officer was injured and also taken to the hospital after a rock broke the windshield of a squad car, according to Milwaukee Police. A car was also set aflame during Monday’s fracas.

The death of Sylville Smith, 23, triggered unrest hours after his killing on Saturday as protesters torched six businesses, including a gas station, burned cars and threw rocks at officers.

Shoes, children’s toys and household items floated through knee-deep water outside his home.
With their homes largely intact they know they’re the lucky ones.

The Face Of The Olympics Will Never Look The Same:

Simone: That’s a name many Olympic viewers will never forget.

Simone Manuel, a 20-year-old black female swimmer, and Simone Biles, a 19-year-old black female gymnast, dominated in two sports in which most US competitors are white.
They have been making history — and here’s how.

Swimming, gymnastics and race

As recreational swimming became increasingly popular across the United States in the 1920s, public pools and beaches were racially segregated.
