Kenosha County prosecutors accused Rittenhouse of Antioch, Ill. of killing Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber during a protest against a police shooting in August They also accused him of injuring a third man, Gaige Grosskreutz

Rittenhouse faces multiple charges including intentional homicide and illegal possession of a gun His lawyers say he was acting in self-defense The case was a rallying point for the Tories upset with destruction of property during protests across the country this year

Rittenhouse surrendered to Antioch Police the morning after the shooting He was later extradited to Wisconsin and his bail was set at $ 2 million

Prosecutors accused Dominick Black, 19, of Kenosha, of supplying the weapon used in the shooting

In video obtained from the Antioch Police Department, Black told police what Rittenhouse allegedly told him on the ride after the shooting

Black told police Rittenhouse said he shot because people were attacking him and going to kill him

The 17-year-old’s sister, Faith, was in the same police station just hours after the shooting

In a phone interview with the Washington Post, Rittenhouse revealed that the gun he used in the shooting was purchased with money he received from an unemployment check during the pandemic coronavirus Rittenhouse, 17, couldn’t legally buy the gun himself, so he gave the money to a friend to buy it for him, according to Rittenhouse and police reports

“I got my $ 1,200 from Illinois coronavirus unemployment, because I was on YMCA leave, and I got my first unemployment check, so I was like, ‘ Oh, I’m going to use this to buy it, ‘”he told Publish

In his interview, Rittenhouse said he didn’t regret having a gun that night, saying, “I had to protect myself”
