Friday, a jury in Kenosha County, Wisconsin, found Kyle Rittenhouse not guilty on all charges.
The jury deliberated on five charges against Rittenhouse, all related to Rittenhouse’s activity in Kenosha on Aug. 25, 2020. He killed two and wounded a third during riots over the death of Jacob Blake at the hands of police.
Despite the fact that jurors have been deliberating for two days in the trial of accused killer Kyle Rittenhouse, Wednesday was still a contentious day inside the Kenosha County Courthouse.
Twelve jurors, chosen at random by Rittenhouse himself, will continue to deliberate Thursday, their third day of working to decide the 18-year-old’s fate.
In the trial of Kenosha teenager Kyle Rittenhouse, new witness testimony reveals that Rittenhouse shot the first of three men in self-defense when the attacker lunged for his rifle in an attempt to take it from him, as reported by Fox News.
This account was given by Daily Caller reporter Richie McGinniss, who filmed part of the altercation on his cell phone. McGinniss said that the man in question, Joseph Rosenbaum, was actively chasing the armed Rittenhouse and, upon getting close to him, lunged for his weapon.
