Kyle Rittenhouse, the teenager who went to Kenosha and shot protesters on Tuesday, now faces multiple charges against him.
A complaint was filed against Rittenhouse on Thursday.
Rittenhouse killed two persons and injured one during the protests in Kenosha, the complaint said, as per ABC.
The complaint also includes the name of the victims.
Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber died from gunshots inflicted by Rittenhouse, while another person, Gaige Grosskreutz was injured.
Rittenhouse’s charges, according to an ABC report, include the following:
- attempted homicide
- two counts of recklessly endangering safety
- juvenile possession of a dangerous weapon
According to Sally Schulze, Fox News anchor, the police confirmed that “Rittenhouse is being charged as an adult.”
Rittenhouse is also charged with 1st degree intentional homicide, another journalist, Molly Beck reported.
Rittenhouse is currently at the custody of the Lake County Judicial System, as per the Antioch police.
Last weekend, Kenosha police shot Jacob Blake at point-blank range after reports of alleged domestic violence.
Blake is now at the hospital, paralyzed and handcuffed to his hospital bed, his family said.
Fox News host, Tucker Carlson, recently trended on social media after his comment about the shooting.
“How shocked are we,” Carlson said, “that 17-year-olds” with weapons “decided they had to maintain order when no one else could.”
People also tried pressuring Fox to fire him.
Critics accused Carlson of justifying murder.
“Carlson is encouraging more violence and murder,” one Twitter user, a writer, Judd Legume said.
Other personalities are more direct in airing their support for Rittenhouse.
Ann Coulter, an American author and lawyer, justified Rittenhouse’s actions when she tweeted, “I want him as my president.
Aubrey Huff, an ex-professional baseball player added his support to Rittenhouse.
According to him, Rittenhouse “is a national treasure.”
Both tweets are now deleted.
