During Kyle Rittenhouse’s trial on Tuesday, during which Gaige Grosskreutz testified, it was revealed that Grosskreutz, one of the three men shot by Rittenhouse on the night of August 25, 2020 during riots in Kenosha, Wisc., was only shot after he pulled his gun on Rittenhouse.
The defense showed video of Rittenhouse running away from people advancing on him, and asked Grosskreutz if he was one of those “chasing” Rittenhouse. Grosskreutz said that he wasn’t “chasing” Rittenhouse, but that he was “moving toward Mr. Rittenhouse.”
Grosskreutz was asked by the defense about how he approached Rittenhouse, who was down on the street. Grosskreutz had his hands up as he was, the defense noted, “moving your front foot and you are moving toward Mr. Rittenhouse at that point.” Grosskreutz agreed, and said that he was, at that point, five feet away.
