New documents released by the Wisconsin Department of Justice detail the police shooting of Jacob Blake, a Kenosha man wanted on a felony sex assault warrant who was shot seven times while resisting arrest.

The document also reveals Blake admitted to possessing a knife following the shooting incident, a weapon that was found on the floorboard of Blake’s car.

Preliminary reports had indicated that Blake was accosted by Kenosha Police after merely ‘breaking up a fight.’ The Wisconsin DOJ instead describes the Kenosha Police Department as receiving reports that Blake was trespassing in a woman’s home.

The document identified Kenosha Police Department officer Rusten Sheskey as the officer that fired on Blake.

The Wisconsin DOJ’s Division of Criminal Investigation is currently investigating the shooting with assistance from the FBI. All officers involved in the incident have been placed on leave, but there’s no sign that they’ll be subject to punishment or criminal sanction as of Wednesday.

Blake suffered serious injuries from the shooting, and is still receiving treatment at an area hospital. It’s unclear if he’ll be able to walk again.

Another camera angle of the incident reveals that the 29-year old man was brawling and wrestling with officers in an attempt to resist arrest. Blake may have been hoping to avoid identification in order to avoid being arrested for his outstanding felony sex crimes warrant.

Blake had been arrested and charged with felony crimes in 2015 and 2016, including one incident where he pulled a gun on a man in a bar fight.
