Sheskey shot Blake after Blake opened the driver-side door of his car and started to lean inside. The statement said officers found a knife on the floor of the driver side of the car.
It also said that Blake had told officers that he had a knife.
Stone, who said he has known Blake for about five years,told Insiderthat Blake’s motivation for going to the car will have been to check on his children, three of whom were in the back seat and “screaming.”
“Knowing Jacob, that’s what he was doing,” Dan Stone told Insider. “His kids are his priority. He wanted to make his kids safe.”
As Blake leaned inside the car, Sheskey shot him seven times in the back, causing him severe injuries.
