Kyle Rittenhouse, who shot three people during unrest in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in 2020, was acquitted on Friday, November 19, of first-degree intentional homicide and other felony charges.
Video taken by Brendan Gutenschwager shows the reaction outside the Kenosha County Courthouse as news broke that the jury had cleared Rittenhouse on all counts.
It was the fourth day of jury deliberations.
Rittenhouse, 18, was facing five felony charges including first-degree intentional homicide, in the shooting deaths of two protesters in Kenosha last year. His lawyers argued he was acting in self-defense. Credit: Brendan Gutenschwager via Storyful
