Survivor expected to testify in Rittenhouse trial's 2nd week


A man who suffered a severe arm injury when he was shot by Kyle Rittenhouse during a night of protests against racial injustice last year is expected to testify this week.

Prosecutors are close to wrapping up their case in Rittenhouse’s murder trial.

But before they do, Gaige Grosskreutz is expected to take the stand.

Rittenhouse is charged with shooting Grosskreutz and fatally shooting two other men in the summer of 2020.

During the first week of Rittenhouse’s trial, prosecutors played numerous videos that showed the events of Aug. 25, 2020, from different angles.

They tried to paint the Illinois man as an inexperienced teen who misrepresented his age and medical training to other armed civilians

Prosecutors have drawn out testimony from people who were with Rittenhouse that night, as well as from police officers and loved ones of the men who died.

Meanwhile, Rittenhouse's attorney Mark Richards has worked to show that Rittenhouse fired in self-defense after the men attacked him.
