Kyle Rittenhouse found not guilty on all charges

Rittenhouse, 18, claimed self-defence in shooting of protesters at racial justice demonstration in Wisconsin last year.

A jury in the United States has found Kyle Rittenhouse not guilty of all charges related to the shooting of protesters at a demonstration against racial injustice in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in August last year.

Rittenhouse, now 18, had faced a potential life sentence for fatally shooting Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber and wounding Gaige Grosskreutz.

Rittenhouse’s lawyers argued he had a right to carry the semi-automatic rifle he brought to the demonstration and had acted in self-defence after being attacked.

The widely watched trial has stirred bitter debate in the US over racism, gun violence, and vigilantism.
