OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — Protesters gathered at 72nd and Dodge and 11th and Howard on Monday after the police shooting of 29-year-old Jacob Blake.

Blake was shot several times in the back by police in Kenosha, WI on Sunday while his three children were in the car.

This shooting comes months after ongoing protests following the killing of George Floyd and many say this is just another example of systemic racism in the U.S.
