When asked how this could happen, Kenosha County Sheriff Dave Beth said at a press conference that an officer might not be aware of exactly what was going on and said: “He screamed, shouted, there are chants, there is a running squad car, it’s at idle (police vehicles). If the officer was in the car, the radio traffic was uninterrupted. ”
Some on social media say he goes by the name Kyle Lewis. This is his mother’s last name, but Kyle Rittenhouse is used in court records.
According to court records, he is only 17 years old. Witnesses told at the scene that he was with a group of white men who came to Kenosha to defend the property after Black Lives Matter protesters wreaked havoc on a series of arson fires and other property throughout the city. .

Dramatic photos from the scene show a man accused of being Rittenhouse shot down by a skateboarder at one point in the storyline that saw him being chased on the street before firing.
On the evening of August 25, clashes broke out as demonstrators and counter-demonstrators were ground in the streets and pushed back from the park and courthouse by the authorities. A series of clashes ensued, and witnesses and videos show several different gunfire incidents that erupted in turn. Witnesses and the referral voice pointed out that there could be more than one hitman. Rittenhouse is the only accused hitman so far.
Shortly before midnight on August 25, two people died during demonstrations in Kenosha, Wisconsin, and a third noted a series of chaotic gunfights on the street, as eyewitnesses and videos indicate. Graphic videos show a victim lying on the ground with a head injury. One person in the video claims that Rittenhouse shouted that he was not a hitman before he fell to the ground and opened fire.

Kenosha County Sheriff David Beth told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that he wasn’t sure whether there was one shooter.
Videos and witnesses described a confusing scene with multiple eruptions of gunfire. At one point, videos and witnesses reveal, a white man in a green shirt ran down the street shouting that he wasn’t the shooter as people chased him. Several witnesses told he was struck by someone with a skateboard and fell to the ground, with a gun in his hand, firing. People said they heard multiple guns going off. It appeared there was a shooting before the chase. Three witnesses told  that the original shooter was a person in a helmet and bulletproof vest and wasn’t the same man being chased. They said the initial shooting ignited when the man, who was white, argued with Black Lives Matter protesters because they had lit fires in the area. Pictures of the man in the green shirt circulated widely on social media as people tried to identify him.


“Down at the end of the block, there’s another victim. There’s a loaded handgun in the road right here,” a man says in one of the videos, which you can see later in the story.
“Multiple gunshots are fired after people chased a guy with a rifle. Rifle dude tripped and fell. He fired his gun at a guy who jumped on top of him,” Julio Rosas, a journalist with TownHall.com, wrote.
 
In a video by CJ TV, the shooting breaks out around 7 minutes into the video, which you can see above. The narrator says a man’s arm was “blown off” at one point in the video. One shooter shot two people, the narrator says. He refers to the man in the green shirt as being one of the “militia” people.
In the beginning of that video, the protesters go to check out a tire fire. At that point, gunshots ring out. “Those are gunshots down there,” the narrator says and starts running. People start shouting for a medic. A garbage can is lying in the middle of the street, turned over.
Then, the man in a green shirt runs down the middle of the street carrying a long gun. “They’re going to beat him up,” someone says. More gunshots erupt.
“Oh s*** he just shot that guy in the stomach,” the narrator says. “S***, people are getting shot all around us.”
The accused shooter, Rittenhouse, is wearing a green shirt with a backward baseball cap and running with a long gun. People give chase. More gunshots erupt. “I didn’t f****** do it,” someone shouts.

A man is bleeding from his right arm and people grab a tourniquet. “That guy was directly in front of me and I watched him shoot two people,” the narrator says.
One live stream by Andrew Mercado shows people congregating at a gas station before gunfire breaks out down the street. “People are just shooting. Oh my God,” Mercado says. Be aware that the language in the video is graphic.

“Oh my f****** Christ God, he says. “Oh s***, that’s gunshots. They’re shooting.” The gunshots break out at 3 hours and 40 minutes into the video above. Right before the shooting, Mercado says, “It looks like the town is kicking the people out. These are community members here.” Multiple gunshots ring out. “Shots fired. That’s real gunfire. Just passing 61st Street,” he says.
“Somebody’s hurt,” a man shouts.
“There’s still gunshots in the city. They’re shooting,” says Mercado. People run down the street.
“That’s not the shooter,” he says at another point. “Now he’s on the ground. He’s shooting, he’s shooting, he’s shooting. Get down. Get down.” More gunshots ring out.
“People down, shots are fired.”
More shots ring out in the video.
There is a fire burning on the street.
There is confusion about the man people are chasing. “He got hit in the head and dude he just shot. He had a gun in his hand,” Mercado said.
“This is getting too much,” another man told him. “Another person got shot point blank right down the street.”
A white man with a weapon in a baseball hat was interviewed. “We came out initially to protect the property here. Things got a little rowdy,” he said. “We were able to calm it down. We were then trying to provide medical aid to protesters.” He said people had various injuries including a “gunshot to the arm.”
“We don’t know who, what or why, someone approached someone with a gun and shot,” the man said, adding that two people were shot, possibly a third. The accused shooter kept saying, “I didn’t shoot anybody.” He had a medic bag on his back.
Julio Rosas, TownHall reporter, described a series of conflicts between armed citizens and demonstrators.
He reported that “rioters are getting into confrontations with armed citizens who are out here to prevent looting and destruction to businesses.” Three witnesses told that they believed at least one of the shooters was part of one of those armed citizen groups; they described the group as “All Lives Matter” in focus, saying one of its members was wearing a shirt with that slogan, but that was not the shooter.
At one point, the men were in a group with protesters whose leader was talking about using leaf blowers and fire extinguishers against the police. It’s not clear whether that group was the same group whose member was involved in the shootings; witnesses said there was more than one such group. Counter-protesters organized their resistance on social media. There was a lot of firepower on the streets of Kenosha.
