Kyle Rittenhouse, the Antioch teen accused of shooting three agitators in a seemingly case of self-defense, was released from Kenosha County Jail on Bond on Friday. A Wisconsin court set his bail at $2 million, which his attorney paid according to Kenosha County Sheriff Department. The money was contributed by well-wishers who felt that the 17-year old acted justifiably after being mobbed by Black Lives Matter protesters.
Rittenhouse is accused of two counts of first-degree intentional homicide related to the death of Anthony Huber, 26, of Silver Lake and Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, of Kenosha. He also faces attempted first-degree intentional homicide for the shooting of Gaige Grosskreutz, 22, of West Allis.
Additionally, the 17-year old will fight two counts of intentional, reckless endangerment for shooting within a crowd and possession of a firearm by a minor. The state of Illinois cleared him of the illegal firearm possession by a minor charge after discovering that the AR-15 rifle was bought, stored, and used in Kenosha.
Police also charged Dominic Black, 19, with two felony counts of providing a minor with a firearm and causing death. Black purchased the Smith & Wesson M&P 15 rifle from Ladysmith Ace Home Center and stored it in his stepdad's house. The two planned on volunteering to defend Car Source on Sheridan Road.
An Illinois judge approved the teen's extradition on August 30, 2020, after ruling that the Illinois court didn't have jurisdiction on the case.
