Improved drone footage shows the first of two deadly Kyle Rittenhouse shootings in Kenosha, Wisconsin


A Wisconsin jury watched a high-definition drone video on Tuesday of the moments before Kyle Rittenhouse shot one of the two men he killed in August 2020.

The enhanced video showed Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, apparently in pursuit of Rittenhouse before Rittenhouse, 17 at the time, turned and opened fire at close range, killing Rosenbaum.

A medical examiner, Dr Doug Kelley, testified that the fatal shots were fired at a downward angle with Rosenbaum being horizontal, suggesting the victim was not a threat at the time.

But defense attorney Mark Richards hinted Rosenbaum could still be a danger to Rittenhouse, who made four shots in 0.76 of a second. Richards bowed his head, as if “charging like a bull” at the witness, and Kelley agreed that the defense’s interpretation might also be valid.

Rittenhouse, now 18, faces six counts relating to the murders of Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber, 26, and the injury of Gaige Grosskreutz, during the August 25, 2020 demonstration against the shooting in the police against Jacob Blake.

Rittenhouse and dozens of others were on the streets of Kenosha after a black man Blake was shot by a white policeman two days earlier.

The unrest in Kenosha drew Rittenhouse across state lines and into Kenosha, where he was armed with an AR-15 style semi-automatic rifle during the protests.

Kenosha is approximately 20 miles northeast of Rittenhouse’s home in Antioch, Illinois, and 40 miles south of Milwaukee.
