MILWAUKEE (AP) — The Latest on violence in Milwaukee following the shooting of a man by police (all times local):

9:35 a.m.

The Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office says four deputies were hurt when demonstrators clashed with law enforcement for a second night in a Milwaukee neighborhood.

Sheriff's spokeswoman Fran McLaughlin says the deputies were hit by concrete or rocks and that two of them haven't returned to duty.

Two dozen officers in riot gear on Sunday confronted protesters who were throwing rocks and other objects at police near where Sylville K. Smith was fatally shot a day earlier. Police tried to disperse the crowd and warned of arrests.

Police say an 18-year-old Milwaukee man was shot and seriously injured during the unrest Sunday. Officers used an armored vehicle to retrieve him and take him to a hospital. Police haven't said who shot the man, but that they continue to look for suspects.

Police say an 18-year-old Milwaukee man was seriously injured when he was shot during a late night protest over the police killing of a black man.

Authorities said Monday that the man was shot during a second night of unrest in the Sherman Park neighborhood on Milwaukee's north side. Officers used an armored vehicle to retrieve the injured man and take him to a hospital. There has been no update on his condition.

Police say they are seeking suspects in the shooting.

About two dozen officers in riot gear confronted protesters who were throwing rocks and other objects at police near where Sylville Smith was killed Saturday. There was no repeat of the widespread destruction of property that marred Saturday night's unrest.

Police Chief Edward Flynn said Smith was shot after he turned toward an officer with a gun in his hand.

Police say they are making multiple arrests in Milwaukee after a second night of unrest over the police killing of a black man.

The arrests follow skirmishes between protesters and police but without the widespread destruction of property that marked the first night after the man's death.

Protesters earlier threw rocks and other objects at officers and police say shots were fired in a handful of locations. One person was injured by gunfire.

The number of arrests was not immediately known.

Police say 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 black man.

But there was no repeat of the 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 black man was fatally shot a day earlier. Police moved in to try to disperse the crowd.

Police Chief Edward Flynn said the man whose death touched off Saturday night's rioting, Sylville Smith, was shot after he turned toward an officer with a gun in his hand.
