A 17-Year-Old boy has been charged with intentional homicide after shooting two protesters to death in Kenosha.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Kyle Rittenhouse was arrested on Tuesday night after he walked up to police officers with a rifle slung across his body just moments after shooting a protester in the head, another in the chest, killing them both, and wounding one other.
According to eyewitness reports, Police was seen driving right past Rittenhouse as bystanders shouted that he just killed someone to officers. Rittenhouse could also be heard saying, “I’ve just killed somebody.”
Reacting to the shooting, social media users have pulled posts suggesting that the teen is an avid supporter of Blue Lives Matter; a group of people violently campaigning for white people.
Protesters recently come out en mass in Kenosha where an unarmed black man Jacob Blakewas fatally shot by police officers. Blake was shot in the back by officers as he tried to get into his vehicle, a vehicle in which three of his sons sat. Blake is reportedly paralyzed from the waist down as a result of the shooting.
