Kyle Rittenhouse broke down in tears and appeared to collapse in the courtroom as the jury in his murder trial acquitted him on all counts.
Rittenhouse was charged intentional homicide, reckless homicide, attempted intentional homicide, and two counts of reckless endangerment after he killed two men and wounded a third on August 25, 2020, in Kenosha, Wisconsin, during riots over the lawful police shooting of Jacob Blake, a black man.
As a woman read off the “not guilty” verdicts, Rittenhouse struggled to hold back tears until he eventually collapsed in his seat. He later hugged one of his defense attorneys.
