The father of Jacob Blake, a Black man who was shot by police in Kenosha, Wisconsin, says his son was left paralyzed from the waist down.

that he was told his son was shot eight times during the Sunday evening confrontation with police, which was captured on cellphone video and led to two nights of unrest in the city between Milwaukee and Chicago.

The southeastern Wisconsin city became the nation's latest flashpoint in a summer of racial unrest after cellphone footage of police shooting Blake as he leaned into his SUV -- apparently while three of his children were sitting in the vehicle -- circulated widely on social media. The 29-year-old was hospitalized in serious condition.

Police in the former auto manufacturing centre of 100,000 people midway between Milwaukee and Chicago said they were responding to a call about a domestic dispute when they encountered Blake on Sunday. They did not say whether Blake was armed or why police opened fire, they released no details on the dispute, and they did not immediately disclose the race of the three officers at the scene.

Evers was quick to condemn the bloodshed, saying that while not all details were known, "what we know for certain is that he is not the first Black man or person to have been shot or injured or mercilessly killed at the hands of individuals in law enforcement in our state or our country.

In the footage, Blake walks from the sidewalk around the front of his SUV to his driver-side door as officers follow him with their guns pointed and shout at him. As Blake opens the door and leans into the SUV, an officer grabs his shirt from behind and opens fire while Blake has his back turned. Seven shots can be heard, though it isn't clear how many struck Blake or how many officers fired.

Nice spin , did you watch the whole video ? I assume you did are just parroting talking points from DNC

Trust me young marxists, choice is simple keep breathing or be fertilizer, cause it's coming...

He would have been fine had he simply complied with lawful directions being given by the Police.

CTV? Always pushing that narrative

Guess he won’t be walking away from the police anymore when they are trying to arrest him. Hard lesson learned.

No more running from the cop for him.

When will black people learn to behave?

Who cares

Why does one of the video links refer to “Kenora”?

You forgot to mention he ignored lawful orders to stop and not try to what looked like grabbing a weapon from his vehicle. He was also a violent felon with a long criminal record with firearms.

Heres a white guy same exact situation as George Floyd Dies just like Floyd But in this Police go free No riots. Not burning down innocent communities, small businesses and the media doesn't give a sh!t because they want their pre-election race war.

i hope there not calling for the abolishment, i agree with defunding but there needs to be money to start up the services that will work with the police. have an officer that is trained in mental health services to be there to help with the issue

Convicted Sex offender shot and paralyzed

Defund the police.

Ctv racebait

Hes going to be one rich black guy


Why do you have to put a colour on this? This does nothing but foster more hatred and separation. If you have to put a colour to a story it is wrong, unless you can prove racism was a part of it. Shame on you for doing this for what would appear to be for more ratings.

He was fighting with the police, yes 7 shots is excessive and I don't understand that part but it starts with compliance, comply with police orders and this won't happen.

Evidence is surfacing that the accused was reaching for his gun. Of course CTV won’t do any investigative journalism on this. Why disrupt he narrative?

I’d like to know why this thug thought reaching for something in his car was a good idea and why he didn’t comply with police instructions when they axed him.

His name is Jacob Blake.
