Kyle Rittenhouse

On Aug. 25, 2020, Kyle Rittenhouse, 17 years old, fatally shot two men and wounded another during protests against police brutality in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Rittenhouse, from Antioch, Illinois, was in Kenosha that night to protect businesses he said.

Facing seven total charges, including two counts of homicide, one reckless and one intentional, and two counts of recklessly endangering safety, Rittenhouse stood trial in November 2021. He was acquitted of all charges.
