Kenosha shooter Kyle Rittenhouse says he used money from a stimulus check to purchase the gun he allegedly used to kill two people and wound one other on the night of August 25.
“I got my twelve hundred dollars from the coronavirus Illinois unemployment cause I was on furlough from YMCA. And I got my first unemployment check so I was like, ‘Oh, I’ll use this to buy it,’” Rittenhouse said in a phone interview with the Washington Post that was published Thursday.
Rittenhouse, 17, allegedly killed Anthony M. Huber and Joseph Rosenbaum and wounded Gaige Grosskreutz during a protest over the police shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
Rittenhouse’s friend Dominick Black, who has been charged with two counts of intentionally giving a dangerous weapon to a person under the age of 18 causing death, allegedly bought and stored the alleged murder weapon
