IL Teen Charged Wisconsin Shooting Said He Was There To Protect Business

The teenager accused of killing two people during a Wisconsin protest Tuesday night said he was there to protect business. Court records in Kenosha County show 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse of Antioch, Illinois is facing a first-degree homicide charge for the deadly shooting. On Wednesday, he was jailed in Lake County, Illinois, where he’s been charged as a fugitive from justice. He will be extradited on Friday. In the hours before the shooting Rittenhouse gave a video interview to the Daily Caller in front of a boarded-up building and said he was protecting the business, and that the rifle was to protect himself. Protesters have been demonstrating in Kenosha since Sunday, when a black man was shot in the back multiple times by police.
