JACOB “Jake” Blake’s father says his son is paralyzed from waist down with “eight bullet holes in his body.”

On Sunday evening, shocking footage emerged showing Blake, 29, being gunned down by police in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

Jacob Blake was shot at least seven times in front of his kids

He was supposed to be celebrating his son’s eighth birthday, reported the Chicago Sun Times.

Jacob Blake Sr told the newspaper there there are “eight holes” in his son’s body.

Blake is also paralyzed from the waist down – and medics don’t know yet if this will be a permanent condition.

Blake Sr will drive from Charlotte, North Carolina, to be by the 29-year-old’s side in hospital.

“I want to put my hand on my son’s cheek and kiss him on his forehead, and then I’ll be OK,” he told the Sun Times.

“I’ll kiss him with my mask. The first thing I want to do is touch my son.”

Blake Sr described the officers who pulled the trigger as “the flint as well as the gasoline” for the violent riots in Kenosha after the shooting.

“Those police officers that shot my son like a dog in the street are responsible for everything that has happened in the city of Kenosha,” he said.

“My son is not responsible for it. My son didn’t have a weapon. He didn’t have a gun.”
