Kenosha police shot a man Sunday evening.
Police had been called to the 2800 block of 40th Street at 5:11 p.m. where the shooting later occurred.
Officers say they provided immediate aid to the shooting victim, who was taken by Flight to Froedtert Hospital in Milwaukee, Kenosha police reported.
The man was in serious condition at Froedtert.
State Sen. Chris Larson of Milwaukee tweeted that the man’s name is Jacob Blake.
The Kenosha News reported that neighbors said the victim was trying to break up a fight between two women. Bystanders said the man was Tased and then shot several times.
A video circulating on social media shows a man in a white shirt and black shorts walking to a gray van, followed by two male police officers with weapons drawn.
As the man opens the door to get in, an officer grabs his shirt to hold him still, then appears to shoot him in the back at close range. Seven shots are heard, followed by a car horn, presumably from the man’s head falling forward. A woman who followed behind the police can be seen screaming and jumping up and down.
Kenosha police requested Wisconsin State Patrol and Kenosha County Sheriff’s deputies come to the scene because the shooting involved an officer.
