Democratic Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers immediately moved to criticize law enforcement officials late on Sunday night after Jacob Blake was shot on Sunday afternoon by police who were responding to a domestic incident.
Evers’s criticism of the police came even as he stated that officials did not have all the details from the incident…
Video of the incident that went viral online appeared to show that something happened while law enforcement was engaging with Blake as they all drew their weapons on him at the same time.
The fact-finding website Heavy.com reported that authorities had a warrant out for Blake’s arrest:
According to Wisconsin Circuit Court Access online records, a Jacob S. Blake, same age and with an address in the same exact block where the shooting occurred, had a warrant issued for him on July 7 on pending accusations of misdemeanor criminal trespass to a dwelling with domestic abuse as a modifier; felony third-degree sexual assault with domestic abuse as a modifier; and misdemeanor disorderly conduct with domestic abuse as a modifier.
