Worrying new footage shows the 17-year-old shooter who shot his first victim in Kenosha


Worrying new footage has been taken of the police-possessed shooter charged with the murder of two Black Live Matter protesters in Kenosha who shot his first victim before they ran away.

Kyle Rittenhouse, 17, was arrested Wednesday at his home in Antioch, Illinois, about 20 miles from Kenosha, where riot has raged for four nights over the shooting of Jacob Blake. He is accused of killing two people in the protests on Tuesday evening while trying to "defend" the city.

On Wednesday, Police Chief Daniel Miskinis appeared to attribute the Tuesday evening violence to the people who broke the curfew, telling a press conference: “Last night, in a situation that started off peaceful and became somewhat unruly … people who came after the curfew There was some sort of incident and people were shot. Had people not been involved, the situation that has evolved may not have occurred. & # 39;

The two men who were killed were Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, from Kenosha and Anthony Huber, 26, from Silver Lake, about 15 miles west of town. The wounded person Gaige Grosskreutz (26) from West Allis, about 30 miles northwest of Kenosha, should survive, the police said.

Videos from the protests on Tuesday evening had already shown that a shooter, later identified as Rittenhouse, was being followed by demonstrators as he ran down a street. The videos show the shooter tripping and falling before firing three out of four shots that hit at least two people. Huber was later identified as the man who was killed in the incident.

Now, a new earlier clip seems to shed light on how the ordeal played out after a first victim was shot in the head outside a nearby auto repair shop. This man, now referred to as the father of a rose tree, is pictured on the ground while Sagittarius stands nearby.

The video shows the shooter running away in the moments after the shots were fired. He was heard saying, "I just killed someone." It is then the second and third shootings seen in the first video that was widely circulated on Wednesday. It is believed to have happened after protesters chased the shooter.

Facebook removes the "Kenosha Guard" militia group of 3,000 members who "ask patriots to take up arms and defend our city from the evil thugs tonight".

Facebook opened an investigation Wednesday against a 3,000-member group called the Kenosha Guard after promoting an event encouraging armed civilians to take to the streets on Tuesday to defend the city.

The militia group had hosted an event entitled "Armed Citizens to Protect Our Lives and Property," according to screenshots from The Verge.

"Are there any patriots who are ready to take up arms and defend our city from the evil thugs tonight?" said the group in a post.

"No doubt they are currently planning the next part of town on fire tonight."

In a statement to the website, Facebook confirmed that the group had been deleted for violating its policies, but said no evidence was found linking Rittenhouse to the group or event.

"At this point, we didn't find any evidence on Facebook to suggest that the shooter followed the Kenosha Guard Page or that he was invited to the event page they organized," the company said.

"The Kenosha Guard Page and its Event Page have violated our new policy for militia organizations and have been removed on this basis."

A member of the group told The Verge it was unknown whether the shooter was "responding to a call to arms by the Kenosha Guard militia".

“Just like with the Jacob Blake shooting, we all need the facts and evidence to get out before we pass judgment. God bless and stay safe, Kenosha! & # 39; the statement said.

The shooting of the father of six, Blake 29, sparked protests in the city against police brutality and racism. He was hit from behind at close range in a hail of bullets fired on Sunday by police officers who followed him with guns drawn as he walked from the officers to his car and opened a door to the vehicle.

Three of his young sons in the car – three, five, and eight years old – saw their father shot, according to civil rights attorney Ben Crump, who represents the Blake family.

His shooting occurs three months after the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers approved the deployment of 500 National Guard members to Kenosha Thursday, doubling the number of troops in the city to 100,000.

Guards from Arizona, Michigan and Alabama came to Wisconsin to help, Evers said Thursday. He didn't say how many.

In Washington, the Justice Department said it had dispatched more than 200 federal agents from the FBI, the US Marshal Service, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

The White House said up to 2,000 National Guard troops would be provided.

The Justice Department also announced that the US law firm and the FBI, in collaboration with Wisconsin law enforcement, would conduct a civil rights investigation into the shooting of Blake.

Another Tuesday night clip filmed viewers desperately trying to put pressure on the injured man's head wound with a T-shirt as they shouted, "We have to keep him alive" and "Put pressure, exert pressure".

It is not yet clear what happened in the run-up to the first shooting, but police fear that this was due to a conflict at a gas station between "self-appointed militias" defending local companies from looters.

Separate videos capturing the other two shootings showed a group of protesters chasing the shooter as he ran in the middle of the street. You can hear someone in the crowd ask, "What did he do?" and another replies that the man shot someone.

The videos show the shooter stumbling and falling in the street before one chaser takes a flying kick on him while another appears to hit him with a skateboard.

The gunman fired three out of four shots from a seated position and hit at least two people, including one who fell over the chest and another who stumbled and put pressure on his arm.

Huber was identified as the man with the skateboard who died. His girlfriend paid emotional tribute to him on Wednesday night, calling him "one of the most amazing people of all time".

As the crowd dispersed, the shooter stood up and continued down the street as police cars arrived.

He then walks towards police vehicles with his hands in the air while other protesters yell at the police to arrest him, claiming he had just shot two people.

The teenager was arrested the following day and is currently in custody as an adult.

Groups walking with long guns on Kenosha's streets were nowhere to be seen early Thursday after gloomy protests and no widespread unrest on the first night since the police shots at Blake over the weekend.

On Wednesday evenings, groups with long guns were not patrolling Kenosha's streets, as was the case during the previous nights' protests.

The protesters also stayed away from a courthouse where there had been clashes with law enforcement agencies. Unlike the previous two nights, when dozens of fires started and businesses searched and destroyed, there was no widespread unrest.

On Tuesday, just before Rittenhouse opened fire, he gave an interview to right-wing news agency The Daily Caller.

The teenager, who was in the front row of a Trump rally in Des Moines, Iowa in January, told the reporter he was a certified paramedic and said he patrols the streets of Kenosha to provide medical assistance to everyone, who were in need and helped protect local businesses from looters and rioters.

“People get hurt. Our job is to protect this business and part of my job is to help people too, ”said Rittenhouse of his militia.

"If someone is injured, I am in danger," added Rittenhouse, who was previously seen guarding a local auto shop with a group of armed militiamen.

“That's why I have my rifle, because of course I can protect myself. I also have my medkit. & # 39;

He also claimed that earlier that night he "de-escalated" a potentially violent situation in which he and the rest of his vigilantes ordered protesters to leave a church they had targeted.

When asked whether the outcome would have been different if the police had reacted to the scene instead, Rittenhouse replied: "I have a feeling that there would be a lot more victims and a lot more injuries."

"I think the police are fine where they are and they should let us run medical care because EMS is not coming in," he continued. "We citizens have to help each other."

In a press conference about the shooting, Kenosha County Sheriff David Beth told reporters that it was possible the shooter was part of an armed militia that had previously asked the department if they could join the police in order to provide protection to contribute to the city. In Wisconsin, it is legal for anyone over the age of 18 to openly carry a gun without a license, but it is not legal for anyone under the age of 18 to own a gun.

Beth said, "And I say," Oh, damn no. "What happened last night is the perfect reason I wouldn't."

The sheriff called it a "frightening thought" that untrained members of the public could ever be given the same duties or privileges as the police.

& # 39; Oh damn no. What a scary, scary thought that would be in my world, ”he said.

Huber was identified as the man with the skateboard who died. His girlfriend paid emotional tribute to him on Wednesday night at the center and called him "one of the most amazing people of all time".

But footage from the night shows the police thanking a group of armed militias, including Rittenhouse, and giving them water.

“We appreciate your here,” one officer said to the group over a loudspeaker.

The sheriff later defended the officers by saying, "Our MPs would throw water on anyone."

In a photo of his mother, Wendy Rittenhouse, he wears what appears to be a blue law enforcement uniform and a brimmed hat worn by state troops.

Records show that his mother claimed in January 2017 that a classmate of their son's called him "stupid" and "stupid" and threatened him when she applied for a warrant from the police.
