Anthonoy Huber, 26
Jospeh Rosenbaum, 36
On August 25, 2020, amid the unrest in Kenosha, Wisconsin, after the police shooting of Jacob Blake, Kyle Rittenhouse, a 17-year-old from Antioch, Illinois, shot and killed two men and wounded another man in the arm during confrontations at two locations. He was armed with an AR-15 style rifle and the individual wounded by Rittenhouse was armed with a handgun.
Rittenhouse had said he was there to provide medical aid and was carrying a medkit.
At the first location, Rittenhouse was pursued by a group, including Kenosha resident Joseph Rosenbaum age 36. A gunshot was fired into the air by a third party.
Rittenhouse was approached by Rosenbaum, who was unarmed.
Rittenhouse then fired four times at Rosenbaum, who died shortly afterwards.
At the second location, Rittenhouse tripped while fleeing and a man kicked him. Rittenhouse fired at the man twice but missed. Protesters approached Rittenhouse while he was still on the ground, and Silver Lake resident Anthony Huber age 26 struck Rittenhouse with a skateboard and struggled for control of his rifle.
Rittenhouse then fired at Huber once, killing him. West Allis resident Gaige Grosskreutz then approached Rittenhouse and pointed a handgun at him, following which Rittenhouse shot him once, severing his right biceps.
Rittenhouse was arrested and charged with multiple counts of homicide and unlawful possession of a firearm, and a 19-year old man was arrested and charged with unlawfully supplying Rittenhouse's rifle. Rittenhouse's attorneys say he acted in self-defense upon hearing firearm discharge and in response to the physical confrontations from protesters. Public sentiment and media coverage of the shootings was polarized. The trial for Rittenhouse began on November 1, 2021, in Kenosha.
