Police said one person was shot at a Milwaukee protest on Sunday evening and officers used an armored vehicle to retrieve the injured victim during a second night of unrest over the police shooting of a suspect, but there was no repeat of widespread destruction of property.

Some two dozen officers in riot gear confronted a group who were throwing rocks and other objects at police near where the fatal officer-involved shooting occurred a day earlier. Police moved in to try to disperse the crowd and warned of arrests, CBS News reports.
