Joe Biden met for an hour Thursday with relatives of Jacob Blake, whose shooting by Kenosha police caused nation wide protests before meeting with other residents of the Wisconsin city.

Biden along with his wife Jill had a closed door meeting at Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport with Blake's father Jacob Blake Sr., sister Letetra Widman, brother Myron Jackson, sister Zietha Blake and mother Julia Jackson, who attended by phone. Also attending the meeting were members of Blake's legal team Ben Crump, Patrick Salvi Sr. and B’Ivory LaMarr, on Jacob Blake’s legal team.

Biden's campaign did not go into the specifics of the conversation. The Bidens then headed to Kenosha, for a meeting with community leaders, in an effort to quell violent protests and riots that erupted after police shot and paralyzed the 29-year-old African American.
