Early Sunday, November 7, 2021 the City of Kenosha had its 14th homicide at about 12:50am. A man was gunned down after one neighbor reported “about 30 gunshots” were heard in the area where dozens of patrons were leaving The Vault Nightclub. Management invited Milwaukee rapper “MikeMike” to perform for many that were in attendance. Three Kings Security reportedly had 15 security guards present, mostly armed. According to another neighbor, after the shootings, more people arrived on scene, including children. According to a patron that spoke to KCE on the condition of anonymity, KPD was at the business about two hours before the shooting saying that there was a “report that a fight and/or shooting was going to go down.” We were also told that armed security shot also. Early Sunday, KPD Detectives Kukowski and Kenesie went into the building connected to The Vault Nightclub with a key-holder. Police were also gathering video footage from local businesses. State police were on the scene gathering digital 3D imaging and taking photos with a drone. Two evidence technicians, Officer VanWie and Officer Weidner were collecting spent shell casings an locating more with a metal detector in the grassy area that once contained the condemned parking garage. KCE photographed blood on the sidewalk and broken fake nails near them, suggesting a female melee. We also photographed countless evidence makers and shell casings. The wind speed was higher than usual, so police had a hard time keeping them stationary.
Here is the breakdown of homicides in the city:
Of course the buck stops with Kenosha Mayor John Antaramian (D) and we reached out for comment. He didn’t respond. He is busy working on another public housing project that is expected to get unanimous City Council approval. The scene of this homicide is about four blocks from the Mayor’s front porch and only two blocks from the Stella Hotel, housing dozens of journalists from all over the world covering the Rittenhouse self-defense shooting prosecution. Many of these journalists may have heard the gunfire. There are almost two more months in 2021 and the city of Kenosha is almost certain to triple the amount of homicides from the last decade. We reached out to The Vault Owners Kevin and Shel Parham and they didn’t return our call. See below for photos and videos from last night and this morning.
