The following is a statement from Interim Chief of Police John Drake concerning Sunday’s officer-involved shooting in Wisconsin:

“Like many across the country, I am saddened and have serious concerns regarding the police shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin. The video, which is all the public has to rely on presently, is troubling to me.
