A police-involved shooting of a black man identified as Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wis., on Sunday led to hours long protests that turned into looting, riots and at one point an officer was hit in the head with what witnesses say was a brick, according to a video posted on social media.
Police reportedly tasered and shot Jacob Blake several times after he apparently tried to break up a dispute. The Wisconsin Department of Justice’s Division of Criminal Investigation is looking into the officer-involved shooting.
A video posted by Twitter user @BotchlaUS on Sunday night shows a pair of officers walking around a police car amid a backdrop of fighting and fires when an officer is hit and seen collapsing to the ground.
As Officers are seen trying to help, people in the background are heard yelling, “He just got bricked,” and, “F— the police,” the video shows.
“Officer down,” police were heard yelling on the scanner, according to The Journal Times.
It wasn’t immediately clear if the officer was from Kenosha Police Department or another law enforcement agency.
Throughout the night Black Lives Matter rioters torched local small business buildings in Wisconsin:
BLM also vandalized and looted other local businesses in the area:
More video shows the mob blocking an armored police vehicle and shouting claims that the police are “instigating,” and that they’re, “f—— cowards.”
