Officers in Kenosha, Wisconsin shot and wounded Jacob Blake, a black man, after responding to a call about a domestic dispute. Seven shots were fired by the police officers directed at Blake, who was unarmed, according to local officials.

Protests erupted overnight, causing Kenosha county to declare a state of emergency curfew that was in effect until Monday morning. The incident was captured on video.

Athletes have not been shy about commenting on similar issues in recent months. In the aftermath of the death of George Floyd, more and more athletes began voicing their opinions about police brutality against people of color, and the Black Lives Matter movement.
