MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Fifteen people were arrested after a second night of violence erupted in Madison, with police firing tear gas as protesters again threw rocks and damaged store downtown stores following an earlier peaceful protest over the death of George Floyd.
There were also protests Sunday night in Milwaukee and Racine, continuing a weekend of unrest both in Wisconsin and across the country in reaction to Floyd’s death. Madison police reported Monday that multiple stores were broken into in the State Street area.
Police say one of the 15 people arrested was armed with a handgun.
National Guard troops were deployed in both Madison and Milwaukee.
