Kyle Rittenhouse won’t face charges over rifle


Teen gunman Kyle Rittenhouse will not face charges in his home state of Illinois over the AR-15-style rifle used during the deadly Kenosha protests in neighboring Wisconsin, prosecutors announced.

A police investigation found that the Smith & Wesson .223 caliber rifle the 17-year-old accused killer used “was purchased, stored and used in Wisconsin,” the Lake County State’s Attorney Mike Nerheim said, according to the Chicago Tribune.

But because there is no evidence that Rittenhouse ever “physically possessed” the rifle in the Prairie State he will not face additional charges there, Nerheim’s office said, according to the report.
