Rioters with rifles halted a police vehicle and struck an officer in the head with a brick in Kenosha, Wisconsin following a police shooting of a black man, video showed.

Rioters can be seen impeding a police vehicle while one man circles it with a rifle in a video tweeted by David Hernandez, producer of “Lives Matter.”

Mass unrest erupted in the city on Sunday after officers reportedly shot Jacob Blake, a black man, following a domestic disturbance, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reported.

Rioters yelled “gas us” and “you’re fucking cowards” at the officers in the vehicle, video showed. Law enforcement eventually deployed what appears to be teargas.

An officer was reportedly struck in the head with a brick in a separate incident during Sunday’s unrest in Kenosha, according to video tweeted by Twitter user KittyLists.

Rioters also set vehicles on fire, smashed windows and clashed with law enforcement Sunday night, according to WWMT.

Democratic Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers tweeted Sunday that Blake was “not the first Black man or person to have been shot or injured or mercilessly killed” by police. (RELATED: Looters Argue With Armed Store Owners ‘About Why They Can’t Break In’ On Live TV)
