KENOSHA, Wis. (WBAY) – A man shot by a Kenosha police officer admitted he had a knife in his possession, according to the Wisconsin Department of Justice.
According to a preliminary report from the DOJ, a woman called police Sunday evening saying her boyfriend was there and wasn’t supposed to be on the premises. After police responded to the call they tried to arrest Jacob Blake. One officer used a Taser but it didn’t stop Blake, who is seen on a bystander’s video walking away from officers and leaning into his SUV when he was shot by an officer from behind.
Recall I asked what he was reaching for when he was shot?
The DOJ’s Division of Criminal Investigation is handling the investigation into the officer-involved shooting. DCI agents found a knife on the driver’s side floor of Blake’s SUV and no other weapons.
