Three people are dead and two are in critical condition after a mass shooting late Tuesday in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Police said the shooting took place in a residence and was a domestic situation. 

The dead victims were an 18-year-old woman and a 17-year-old boy. The injured victims are a 35-year-old woman and a 14-year-old boy. 

They identified the suspected shooter as a 24-year-old man, according to police. It is unclear how he was killed.

The shooting was "an isolated incident with no threat to our community," Kenosha police said in a tweet. 

According to a press release Wednesday, Kenosha police received a call at 10:40 p.m. CT which involved incoherent screaming.

"A tragedy like this is beyond comprehension," Interim Police Chief Eric Larsen said. 

"As a community, we are shocked and saddened by this senseless loss of life," Kenosha Mayor John Antaramian said in the press release. "This year we have had 12 homicides and two-thirds of the cases have been results of domestic violence. The current hardships people are facing - including the pandemic - seems to have escalated conflict in some households. If you know someone in crisis please consider sharing community resources to find them the help they need."

Kenosha — which has a population of about 100,000 — has had 13 homicides in 2021. The city is located about 65 miles north of Chicago and 40 miles south of Milwaukee.

Kenosha drew national attention in August 2020 after Jacob Blake, a 29-year-old Black man, was shot and seriously injured by a police officer. Two days later and amid protests over Blake's death, 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse shot and killed two people and wounded another in confrontations.
