Officer Rusten Sheskey will not be charged for shooting Kenosha, WI, resident Jacob Blake seven times in the back last summer, paralyzing him from the waist down.
Blake, who was arguing with officers after they were called to a domestic incident, was walking to his car when Sheskey pulled out his gun and shot him. The incident was recorded by a neighbor and led to several Black Lives Matter protests in the city.
Kenosha District Attorney Michael Graveley said the other two officers involved in the incident will not be charged. Neither will Blake.
“It is my decision now that no Kenosha law enforcement officer will be charged with any criminal offense based on the facts and laws,” Graveley said during the press conference Tuesday.
