Jury finds Kyle Rittenhouse not guilty on all counts
On Friday, the jury in the Kyle Rittenhouse case announced that the defendant was not guilty on all five charges against him.
The 18-year-old had shot three people, killing two of them, during protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin, last year. Rittenhouse argued that he had acted in self-defense.
He was charged with multiple counts of homicide and reckless endangerment.
After closing arguments on Monday, the final 12 jurors were selected on Tuesday and began their deliberations. There were five men and five women on the jury, according to CNN. On Wednesday, they reviewed videos of the incident in the courtroom.
