Attorney Crump will discuss details in the case of the Milwaukee police officer that shot Jacob Blake.

A Wisconsin prosecutor announced that no charges will be brought against the white Kenosha police officer who shot Jacob Blake, a Black man, several times at close range in August.

“It is my decision now, that I announce today before you that no Kenosha law enforcement officer in this case will be charged with any criminal offense,” Kenosha County District Attorney Michael Graveley said during a Tuesday afternoon press conference.

Kenosha police Officer Rusten Sheskey, who is white, shot Jacob Blake seven times in the back after Blake slowly walked away from officers and toward the driver’s side of a parked vehicle. He opened the door and leaned inside.

Investigators said he had a knife was recovered from the floorboard of the driver’s side.

Blake was left paralyzed by the shooting.

Graveley also said no charges would be filed against Blake over his role in the encounter.
