Two men were shot to death and one wounded in Kenosha Tuesday night after riots erupted following an officer-involved shooting.
The shooter was identified as 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse of Lake County, Illinois — video footage shows he was likely acting in self defense.
One man died after being shot in the head and a second man died after being shot in the chest. A third man was wounded after Rittenhouse blew part of his arm off with a rifle.
26-year-old Gaige Grosskreutz had his arm partially blown off after he aggressively rushed at 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse, who had just tripped and fallen while being chased by a group of protesters.
Grosskreutz had a gun in his hand when he ran up to Rittenhouse, so in self defense, the 17-year-old discharged his weapon, blew off part of Grosskreutz’s arm, saving his own life.
This first video shows Rittenhouse tripping and falling after being chased – he then fired his weapon at 3 different men who jumped on him.
The man who hit Rittenhouse in the head with a skateboard was shot in the chest and dropped dead.
Grosskreutz was shot in the arm and ran away screaming for a medic.
