More than 150 Arizona National Guard Troops are being sent to respond to Wisconsin in wake of unrest due to the police shooting of Jacob Blake.

The Arizona National Guard has been activated in the State of Wisconsin as protests erupt and a state of emergency was declared by Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers Tuesday.

During protests, a teen was captured on video firing a rifle in the middle of a protest, killing two people.

Multiple buildings were also set on fire Monday during protests in Kenosha, as protests continue in the city.

The Guardsmen are expected to arrive Friday as Arizona is one of three states sending personnel to Wisconsin according to a press release from Arizona Governor Doug Ducey.
