New footage emerged Tuesday of the moments before Blake was shot multiple times by a White Wisconsin police officer as Blake tried to get into his vehicle. The video reportedly captured Blake engaged in a struggle with at least two Kenosha police officers, and shows an officer appearing to try 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 shows an officer pump several rounds into the apparently unarmed man’s back.
