Protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin has erupted after a white police officer shoots a black man several times in the back as the man’s kids watched in horror.

29-year-old Jacob Blake was reportedly shot in the back 7 times by a white police officer in front of his three sons - ages 3, 5, & 8 - after police were called to a domestic dispute.

A video of the shooting has gone viral. In the clip, you see Jacob – unarmed - walking away from officers, walking towards a vehicle to get inside. As he’s entering the vehicle one of the officers grab his shirt and then began to fire his gun at the man inside of the car. Another officer is seen right behind the officer who shot Jacob. It’s unclear if he fired any shots. People standing outside are heard screaming as Jacob is being shot.

WARNING!! THIS VIDEO IS VERY GRAPHIC!

Local reports indicate Jacob’s three sons were inside the vehicle at the time of the shooting. TRAGIC. Those young children will be traumatized FOR LIFE.

Witnesses on the scene told police Jacob wasn’t even involved in the domestic violence situation. They claim he was trying to break up a verbal altercation between two women yesterday evening.

Kenosha Police said in a statement that Jacob was provided immediate aid and he was transported via Flight for Life to Froedtert Hospital in Wauwatosa.

As of this morning, he’s alive, but he’s in “serious condition” at the ICU in Froedtert Hospital, Milwaukee.

Below is the Kenosha Police Department’s statement regarding the shooting, where the use of excessive force was condemned:

The officers involved have been placed on administrative leave. The Wisconsin Department of Justice’s Division of Criminal Investigation is looking into the officer-involved shooting.

Jacob’s family has hired famed civil rights attorney Ben Crump (Trayvon Martin, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor) to represent them.

After the shooting, people started gathering in the streets and began protesting. “No justice, no peace,” was heard as more and more folks came together. As the night went on, riots started taking over. It’s reported people vandalized police cars by smashing windows, while other set dump trucks on fire.

Yesterday in Kenosha, Wisconsin, Jacob Blake was shot seven times in the back as police attempted to restrain him from getting into his car. His children watched from inside the car and bystanders watched in disbelief. And this morning, the nation wakes up yet again with grief and outrage that yet another Black American is a victim of excessive force. This calls for an immediate, full and transparent investigation and the officers must be held accountable. These shots pierce the soul of our nation. Jill and I pray for Jacob’s recovery and for his children. Equal justice has not been real for Black Americans and so many others. We are at an inflection point. We must dismantle systemic racism. It is the urgent task before us. We must fight to honor the ideals laid in the original American promise, which we are yet to attain: That all men and women are created equal, but more importantly that they must be treated equally.

No word from Trump.

What happened to police tackling and actually just stopping people from resisting arrest? We’re certainly not saying Jacob is a criminal, but to put this in perspective since "the other side" will say "innocent people don't resist arrest," implying those who do deserve to be shot or killed.  Even if he was in the wrong in any way, is THIS how police handle unarmed people they believe are possible criminals in some way who resist arrest? He did not have to be shot 7 times to be taken into custody. PERIOD.

We pray he pulls through and sues the police department, the city and whomever else for everything they’re worth!
