RIOTS have broken out in Wisconsin after an unarmed black man was shot in the back seven times by a white police officer in front of his children.

Jacob Blake has been named as the man who was shot

The shooting happened at about 5 pm local time in Kenosha as officers were responding to a “domestic incident”.

A video circulating on social media showed the man walking towards a car followed by two officers and one of them shooting him in front of his kids as he opens the car door.

Witnesses said Blake was trying to break up an argument between women in a home nearby.

Blake was immediately taken to a hospital by the police, according to a statement issued by the Kenosha police department.

No further explanation was given by the police as to what led to the shooting.

Governor Evers tweeted: “We stand against excessive use of force and immediate escalation when engaging with Black Wisconsinites.”

Furious crowds gathered at the scene and threw bricks and Molotov cocktails at police, according to reports in social media.

Multiple fires were set at the scene by a crowd that gathered to protest against the incident, according to reports.

Some rioters smashed squad cars and one police officer collapsed to the pavement after he was hit with a brick

The unrest has prompted the County of Kenosha to declare a state of emergency.

A city-wide curfew has been imposed until 7 a.m.
