"Kenosha police faced questions about their interactions with the gunman on Tuesday night.

Kenosha County Sheriff David Beth said the gunman likely slipped away because the scene was chaotic, with lots of radio traffic and people screaming, chanting and running - conditions he said can cause "tunnel vision" among law officers."
