Kenosha Officer involved in two shootings 10 days apart

Kenosha residents are demanding answers following two shootings in 10 days involving separate suspects, by the same Kenosha officer.

Officer Pablo Torres shot and killed 26-year-old Aaron Siler this past Saturday.

Police said Torres was trying to arrest Siler on a felony warrant. Siler took off in his car, crashed it, then took off running. According to police, Siler approached Torres with a weapon and that's when Torres shot and killed him.

That all happened just ten days after Torres shot a 66-year-old man.

In the criminal complaint, police said Terry Knight,66, was trying to take his own life and had two knives when police showed up.

Police said, Torres shot Knight after he came toward officers with a knife. Knight survived and was charged with 2nd degree recklessly endangering safety.

The district attorney told us, he is still evaluating the first shooting and hasn't decided whether Torres will face charges.

A spokesperson for the Department of Justice, the police department decides how soon an officer can come back to work after a non-fatal shooting.
