As investigations on the recent Kenosha shooting continues, new and startling facts arise. And now, Kyle Rittenhouse’s attorney is making rather shocking claims. He claims that the teen gunman shot his victims in an act of ‘self-defense.’
Currently, the 17-year-old gunman faces up to 5 felony charges. And they include charges for first-degree murder. But now, his attorney is speaking on his behalf. He says that the young shooter received threatening attacks from all sides. And these weren’t ordinary attacks.
They were indeed ‘lethal forces.’ Hence, he had no choice whatsoever than to act in ‘self-defense.’ Moreover, many people are questioning whether or not the self-defense justification is enough to defend two murders. Let’s not forget how he gravely injured the third victim too.
Today, more video footage continues to surface. And the most recent one relates to how Rittenhouse sprayed bullets on his victim, shooting him 5 times, till he died.
The teen gunman shot the third victim in the arm, claims he had a handgun
The viral Kenosha shooter is in the news again. And this time, it relates to how he blatantly shot all of his victims. Just days ago, the teen gunman shot his first victim dead in the head. And now, another new footage reveals more chilling evidence.
Despite all the sound evidence, Rittenhouse’s attorney says his client is innocent. Moreover, he even goes to the extent of claiming how the gunman acted because he was getting ‘attacked.’ And that meant acting in absolute self-defense.
The attorney, Lin Wood, received more backlash from protestors, after making the following statements.
‘He was attacked with all types of lethal force and hence had every single right to defend himself.’ The event comes in light of how Rittenhouse murdered two victims while injuring a third.
Chilling new footage emerges online
Meanwhile, even more, footage appeared on various online platforms relating to the event. And now, viewers are watching how the teen gunman shot his third victim. This new angle describes the scary moment when bullets strike the protestor’s arm.
Gaige Grosskreutz, the only surviving victim, received major injuries. The video also shows how the victim held a handgun, during the entire event.
The starting words of the attorney come just moments after the teen was accused of his heinous crime. Moreover, he even called up a friend to inform them how ‘he had killed someone.’
Rittenhouse faces charges for first-degree murder
Rittenhouse is going viral for how the teen gunman shot his first victim with a total of five bullets. Each shot hit different regions of his body. Moreover, this includes his right groin area, left thigh, right forehead, as well as left hand.
Meanwhile, the victim’s girlfriend is going public with how her boyfriend surrendered his life, for the sake of others. She believes he stood there fighting till the end, just so he could save her life and those present nearby.
Today, Rittenhouse receives tags as the famous police obsessed gunman. He’s also an avid Donald Trump supporter too. Just last Friday, he appeared in front of the judge, via a Zoom call.
Teen gunman’s extradition hearing pushed back
Rittenhouse’s court hearing will occur after a month’s delay. And that means we’ll be seeing him again in court by September 25.
At the same time, he appears to be at the center of major outrage from the country for his behavior. Likewise, there’s nationwide anger building up over the different treatments by police officials. Some say there’s a certain level of leniency with Rittenhouse, despite the fact that he was armed.
They also believe Jacob Blake didn’t receive similar treatment. And now, it’s turning into a whole debate. Looks like we’ll just have to wait and watch to see what happens next.
