Tuesday night about at about 11:45pm, Kyle Rittenhouse (17), a high school student shot his long gun at protesters, killing 2 people and injuring 1 on the intersection of 63rd street and Sheridan Rd in Kenosha, Illinois.

It was the third night of protest for justice for the police shooting of 29 year old Jacob Blake, as hundreds of people gathered at the scene. Then an armed young man began to shoot.

Kyle Rittenhouse’s Facebook shows him with a long gun. He apparently had been in a program for kids who were considering a career in law enforcement.

One of the victim identified was a 26-year-old Anthony Huber.

Kenosha County authorities issued an arrest warrant for 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse of Antioch, Illinois, on Wednesday morning, charging him with first-degree intentional homicide.

Rittenhouse was arrested on Wednesday morning in Antioch, and he was taken to the Lake County Juvenile Detention Center near Vernon Hills.

An extradition hearing has been scheduled for Friday.
