Witness: Shooting victim lunged toward Rittenhouse’s rifle


KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) — A witness at Kyle Rittenhouse’s murder trial says the first man shot on the streets of Kenosha seemed to “lunge” toward Rittenhouse’s gun in an attempt to take it away just before Rittenhouse fired.

Jamie McGinniss is a video director for the conservative website The Daily Caller, who followed as protester Joseph Rosenbaum chased Rittenhouse.

He said Rosenbaum was lunging toward Rittenhouse and his momentum was moving forward when he was shot.

The lead prosecutor kept pressing McGinniss about whether Rosenbaum was actually falling when he was shot, as McGinniss said in a media interview days after the shooting.
