Kyle Rittenhouse: Accused Kenosha shooter’s bail set at $2M

On Monday, a Wisconsin judge set bail at $2 million for Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year-old Illinois boy accused of fatally shooting two people during an August 25 protest in Kenosha.

WLS-TV reported that Monday’s hearing was held via video conference. The judge also scheduled Rittenhouse’s preliminary hearing for December 3.

Rittenhouse allegedly used an AR-15-style weapon to fatally shoot demonstrators Joesph Rosenbaum, 36, and Anthony Huber, 26, during August’s protest regarding the shooting of Jacob Blake. Kenosha police officer Rusten Sheskey was investigating a domestic incident when he reportedly shot Blake, 29, in the back seven times as Blake opened the driver’s side door to his SUV.

The August 23 officer-involved shooting left Blake partially paralyzed, according to reports.

On Friday, a judge ordered Rittenhouse’s extradition to Kenosha, where he is charged with intentional homicide, attempted homicide, reckless homicide, recklessly endangering safety, and possession of a dangerous weapon by a person under 18.

According to WLS, Rittenhouse claimed he was hit in the head and neck with a baseball bat and skateboard. While medics reportedly observed small scratches on his arm, they did not see any bruising or cuts.

Rittenhouse surrendered to police in Antioch, Illinois, a day after the deadly shooting.
