Survivor Testifies as Rittenhouse Trial Enters 2nd Week

Rittenhouse Trial

KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) – A man who was shot and wounded by Kyle Rittenhouse on the streets of Kenosha during a night of turbulent protests against racial injustice has taken the stand at Rittenhouse’s murder trial.

Gaige Grosskreutz had a pistol in his hand when he approached Rittenhouse and was shot in the arm.

Rittenhouse had just killed two other men. Grosskreutz testified on Monday at the start of the trial’s second week.

Prosecutors have portrayed Rittenhouse as the aggressor who set in the motion the bloodshed that night in August 2020. His lawyers have argued that he acted in self-defense.
