Sheriff David Beth said police may have let the Kenosha gunman walk past them because they had 'tunnel vision.'

From The Associated Press:

According to witness accounts and video footage, police apparently let the young man responsible for the shootings walk past them with a rifle over his shoulder and his hands in the air as members of the crowd were yelling for him to be arrested because he had shot people.

As for how that happened, Sheriff David Beth portrayed a chaotic, high-stress scene, with screaming, chanting, nonstop radio traffic and "people running all over the place" — conditions that he said can cause "tunnel vision" among law officers.
