WARNING: Video was live feed and may contain language not suitable for all viewers. Discretion is advised. Kyle Rittenhouse, who shot and killed two men and injured another during Black Lives Matter protests in Kenosha, Wisc. was acquitted by a jury on Friday.

Both sides wrapped up closing arguments on Monday in a polarizing trial, which garnered national and international attention over the issues of gun violence, vigilantism and second-amendment rights. The jury came to a verdict on Friday afternoon.

The trial, which began on Nov. 2 and ran until Nov. 15, saw the prosecution lay out a case that argued Rittenhouse was the provocateur of violence, which led to him shooting and killing two people and injuring a third. The defence argued that Rittenhouse was acting in self-defence to escape a mob chasing him.

Rittenhouse, then 17 years old, traveled to Kenosha on Aug. 25, 2020, his lawyer said, to protect property from racial justice protests that began following the death of Jacob Blake, a Black man who was shot by a white Kenosha police officer on Aug. 23. Rittenhouse and all the victims were white.
