Judge Bruce Schroeder ordered his Kenosha County courtroom cleared of everyone but the jury on Wednesday afternoon, to allow them to review selected video evidence in their deliberations over the murder trial of 18-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse.
Earlier, prosecutors and defense lawyers had argued over how many times the jury would be allowed to watch the footage. The jury specifically asked for video involving the shooting of Gaige Grosskreutz, who was the last of three people that Rittenhouse shot during the Aug. 25, 2020 melée at a Black Lives Matter riot in the city. In his testimony, Grosskreutz admitted that Rittenhouse had not fired his rifle at him until he himself had drawn a pistol and pointed it at Rittenhouse.
