Attorney General Josh Kaul will hand the investigative file on the Jacob Blake shooting to former Madison Police Chief Noble Wray to review it as a use-of-force expert, Kaul announced Monday evening.

While Kaul picked Wray to serve as a consultant on the case, he was hired by Kenosha County District Attorney Michael Graveley. Wray will provide insight on the case before the file goes to Graveley, who will make a decision on whether to charge the officers involved in the shooting.

"I am confident that Chief Wray will provide a thoughtful and fair analysis of the facts of this case," Kaul said Monday at a news conference.

The announcement came nearly a month after Kenosha Police Officer Rusten Sheskey shot Blake in the back during an arrest, paralyzing him, on Aug. 23.
