Seconds After a Milwaukee Reporter Stated Police Were ‘Calmly Deescalating’ the Situation, This Happens 

After Saturday’s shooting of 23-year-old Sylville Smith, protesters took to the streets of Milwaukee, Wisconsin this weekend.

According to reports, Smith was armed with a semiautomatic handgun at the time of the traffic stop. Smith and a passenger led officers on a foot-chase near the Sherman Park neighborhood. Police pursued the two men. However, Smith was the only suspect shot.

Following the incident, initial peaceful protests gave way to violent unrest with the city up in smoke.

In footage from NBC affiliate TODAY’S TMJ4, a police officer ambushes one of three men attempting to cross the street during Saturday’s mayhem.

A man in a white shirt walks up to police and two other men engaged in a heated discussion.

Police officers attacks the man from behind.

Multiple officers immediately storm the man, pin him down, and even pull out a taser.
