KENOSHA, Wis. (CBS 58) -- We’re learning new information about the victims of a shooting in Kenosha Tuesday night.

The partner of one victim, 26-year-old Anthony Huber of Silver Lake, asked people to join her at a skate park in memory of Huber Wednesday night. 

She was very distraught over his death and did not want to go on camera.  

Huber and a 36-year-old from Kenosha were shot and killed during the unrest Tuesday.  

We don’t yet know the name of the other person killed.  

Investigators tell us a 26-year-old from West Allis was also hurt and is expected to recover.  

Friends and loved ones say Huber was known as a talented skateboarder. 

A friend of Huber’s, who wanted to be respectful and remain anonymous, says he believes Anthony was a hero because he tried to stop the shooter.  

“He is a peaceful person,” said his friend. “He didn’t go out looking to beat people up. He’s more of a defender. And he put his life on the line for others. That’s what he did.” 

Loved ones planned to skate Wednesday night and in the coming days in Anthony Huber’s memory before the 7 o’clock curfew goes into effect.
