KENOSHA, WI – In what could ostensibly be described as the most damaging witness to the prosecution’s case against Kyle Rittenhouse, witness Gaige Grosskreutz – who was shot in the arm by Rittenhouse during the August 2020 incident – was forced to admit that he pointed his gun at Rittenhouse before being shot.
The trial of Rittenhouse continued on November 8th, where witness Grosskreutz was put into a proverbial corner during cross-examination by the defense counsel – being forced to confront video and still images showing him having his weapon pointed at Rittenhouse before being shot in the bicep by the defendant.
Those already familiar with the case know that the interaction between Grosskreutz and Rittenhouse came after the fatal shootings of Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber.
After attempting to suggest that he wasn’t pointing his weapon at Rittenhouse when the defendant fired at him, the defense counsel redirected Grosskreutz’s attention to the still image of his gun pointed down at Rittenhouse and took him through the course of events that were featured on video evidence.
“It wasn’t until you pointed your gun at him, advanced on him, with your gun – not your hands – down pointed at him that he fired, right?”
After the breakdown afforded by the defense while accompanied by the still image, Grosskreutz responded with, “Correct.”
