Here's what we're following today.

A young Black man is in serious condition after being shot seven times by a police officer in Kenosha, Wis., on Sunday. A graphic video that is alleged to show the shooting was posted on Facebook and quickly sparked outrage in the city. Local media identified the man as 29-year-old Jacob Blake.

Kellyanne Conway — one of President Trump’s longest-serving and most visible aides — announced she’s resigning to concentrate on her family. Her husband, George T.

Older white voters — a demographic that played a big role in electing Donald Trump four years ago — may be up for grabs in this year’s election. Many say they are unhappy with his general behavior and how he’s handled the pandemic, but others intend to stick with him even though they aren’t completely happy with his presidency thus far. Listen to what they have to say here or read the story.

The unflappable health care heroes of the current crisis are beginning to crack under the strain. Doctors, nurses and other professionals are not only fighting an intractable virus day after day, they're also coping with isolation, shifting official guidelines and limited ways to recharge. Listen to their stories here or read about them
