A Black man was shot in the back multiple times by police in Kenosha, Wisconsin, on Sunday, a bystander’s video showed, prompting community protests and widespread anger.

The shooting occurred just three months after the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody.

The man, identified by his family as Jacob Blake, 29, was in serious condition at Froedtert Hospital in Milwaukee, the Kenosha Police Department said in a statement. Blake’s family has since confirmed that he is out of surgery and stable.

Police released few details about what happened. They said officers were responding to a domestic incident at 5:11 p.m. and “were involved in an officer-involved shooting.” Mayor John Antaramian said Monday that there was no body camera video of the incident and that he wasn’t sure whether a dash camera recorded it.
