From WGTD News:

A few minutes of mayhem that began on Kenosha's Christmas Lane Friday evening ended with the perpetrator apparently being stabbed to death by a homeowner. According to police scanner traffic, dispatch began receiving calls of a man randomly breaking windows on vehicles, trashing yards and trying to enter homes on 68th St--Christmas Lane--at about 7:20 p.m. According to a dispatcher, the occupants of at least one home physically prevented the man from entering. He then moved south to 69th St. and 64th Ave. where he successfully forced his way into another home and attacked the homeowner, according to a release from the police department. The homeowner fought back and the intruder was subsequently killed during the struggle, the release said.  According to scanner traffic, the intruder was stabbed. The home where it happened is located directly south of Stoker Elementary. 


Kenosha Unified's official enrollment count for the new year taken on Friday showed a drop of 433 students, a decrease that was less than expected. Primarily because of a lower birth rate, the district's enrollment has been steadily declining over the past 10 years. For this year, the district had anticipated a decline of almost 600 students. The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction uses district enrollment as measured by attendance totals on the third Friday of Sept. to dole out state aid. Friday's count in Kenosha Unified put enrollment at 19,187 students.
