Kyle Rittenhouse acquitted on all 5 charges in Kenosha, Wis., protest shootings


A 12-person jury on Friday found, Kyle Rittenhouse, the teenager who killed two people and shot another during unrest in Kenosha, Wisc., last summer, not guilty on all counts in a closely watched homicide trial. Rittenhouse shot and killed Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber and wounded Gaige Grosskreutz during protests in the summer of 2020 following the shooting by law enforcement of Jacob Blake, a Black man. The case has drawn national attention amid concerns about race relations in the U.S. Rittenhouse, who is white, said he went to Kenosha to participate in rallies during the civil unrest that ensued after Blake’s killing. Rittenhouse, who brought an AR-15 rifle to protests, made the case that he acted in self-defense.
