  • The August 23 shooting of Blake 29 reignited protests over racism and police brutality that swept the United States

Jacob Blake has said he has experienced "nothing but pain" since a police officer in Kenosha, Wisconsin, shot him seven times in the back.

Benjamin Crump, an attorney representing the Blake family, said in a statement that Harris on Monday spoke with the family in Milwaukee during her first appearance in the key swing state, reports Xinhua news agency.

The 29-year-old was gravely wounded when a policeman fired seven or eight shots at him as he tried to get into his auto on August 23 in Kenosha, in the Midwestern state of Wisconsin.

Kenosha has become a new epicentre of protests and riots against police brutality and racism last month.

Blake, who was shot in front of his three sons, implores viewers to make positive changes in their lives so the whole community can move forward.

Jacob Blake said he is in constant pain from the shooting, which doctors fear will leave him paralysed from the waist down.

It was later revealed that charge stemmed from an outstanding arrest warrant on charges of sexual assault, trespassing and disorderly conduct relating to a criminal complaint filed in July.

Blake explained he has staples in his back and stomach and described the extent of his suffering. "Every 24 hours it's pain, nothing but pain", he said.

'I just want to say, man - a lot of young cats out there and even the older ones, older than me, it's a lot more life to live out here man, ' Blake said in the video. "We can stick together, make some money, and make everything easier for our people out here, man, because there is so much time that has been wasted".

How did the shooting occur?

After attempting to break up a fight between two women, Blake was shot in the back seven times by a white officer, after trying to get into his vehicle to leave.

Videos of the shooting, which were uploaded online, sparked a series of protests in Kenosha, which turned violent at points.

President Donald Trump visited Wisconsin, which is believed to be a swing state during the November election, praising law enforcement.

A video that has circulated widely on social media showed Blake walking away from police as they attempt to apprehend him with guns drawn.

Biden and his wife Jill met Blake's father, brother, two sisters and members of his legal team in private.

Mr Blake raised his hand to greet Loren Keating, a Kenosha County judicial court commissioner, when addressed, saying "Yes sir", when asked if he could hear clearly and whether he understood the terms of his $10,000 signature bond.
