“Kenosha police are finally giving details to the recent shooting.
After three days of silence, nightly protests, fatal shootings at a protest and a wildcat strike across the sports world, Wisconsin law enforcement officials finally offered their first version of the Kenosha Police shooting of Jacob Blake.
On Wednesday night, the Wisconsin Department of Justice Division of Criminal Investigation said the incident stemmed from a domestic dispute.
Officers arrived and attempted to arrest Blake, a 29-year-old Black man, and used a Taser in a failed attempt to stop him, the DCI said. Blake walked around his vehicle, “opened the driver’s side door, and leaned forward,” the agency said.
