Kyle Rittenhouse, who killed two protestors and harmed many others with his gun, is being charged for homicide.
Charges Against Rittenhouse
A particular seventeen-year old’s video went viral of him shooting protestors, and later, he was identified as Kyle Rittenhouse.
Now he is being considered as an adult and is charged with two counts of first-degree homicide and one count of attempted homicide.
He is also being charged for endangering the lives of civilians and possessing a weapon before the legal age.
The two victims who died and the other who was severely injured were identified as Joseph Rosenbaum, Anthony Huber, and Gaige Grosskreutz.
The incident went like Rosenbaum was trying to take away the gun from Kyle when he heard shots, but he also got shot and fell to the ground.
Kyle began to flee while talking on the phone informing someone that he killed somebody.
And then Huber tried to knock Kyle down and take away the gun, but he was directly in front of the gun and got shot.
Grosskreutz was coming behind Huber, and when he saw him getting the shot, he stopped in his tracks and put up his hands but still got shot in hand, so he ran away yelling for a medic.
The hearing of this murderer is on September 25th.
Rittenhouse doesn’t look like that he will plead guilty as his attorney stated that,
“This young boy was not only attacked on the streets of Kenosha; he’s been attacked in the media and social media all over the damn world; it’s wrong. He’s a 17-year-old boy. He was not there to create trouble, but he found himself with his life threatened, and he had the right to protect himself with self-defense, and now he finds himself accused of murder.”
