New footage from a different angle has emerged of the moments before Jacob Blake, a black 29-year-old, was shot multiple times in the back by a white Wisconsin cop as he tried to get into his vehicle, according to a report.
The video captured Blake engaged in a struggle with at least two Kenosha police officers on the right side of his gray SUV on Sunday, TMZ reported.
An officer appears to be trying to restrain him before he manages to get up and walks to the driver’s side door, the clip shows.
Viral video taken from another vantage point showed an officer pump seven rounds into the apparently unarmed man’s back.
Blake was airlifted to a local hospital, where he underwent surgery, his family said Monday.
Blake’s shooting in front of his three young sons sparked violent protests after he’d reportedly just helped break up a fight.
The officers involved have been placed on administrative leave while the state Justice Department investigates.
