Shooting victim says he was pointing his gun at Rittenhouse

A protester and volunteer medic wounded on the streets of Kenosha by Kyle Rittenhouse testified Monday that he was pointing his own gun toward the rifle-toting Rittenhouse — unintentionally, he said — when the young man shot him. Gaige Grosskreutz, the third and final man gunned down by Rittenhouse during a night of turbulent racial-justice protests in the summer of 2020, took the stand at Rittenhouse’s murder trial and recounted how he drew his own pistol after the bloodshed started. “I thought the defendant was an active shooter,” the 27-year-old Grosskreutz said.
