A detective pointed on Tuesday a gun at the defense team in court during the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse.

The detective can be seen shouldering the AR-15 style rifle towards Rittenhouse attorney Mark Richards’ hand. The demonstration was used to show how Rittenhouse would have shot Joseph Rosenbaum in the hand. (RELATED: New Drone Footage At Rittenhouse Trial Reveals Clearest Video Yet Of Rosenbaum Shooting)

Rosenbaum’s hand was in “close proximity or in contact” with Rittenhouse’s gun immediately before Rosenbaum was killed, according to Dr. Doug Kelley, a medical examiner who performed autopsies on Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber. “This is a close range injury,” Kelley said.

Daily Caller video director Richie McGinniss also testified that Rosenbaum was reaching for Rittenhouse’s gun at the time he was shot.

Judge Bruce Schroeder granted the defense team’s motion Tuesday to drop the curfew citation charge against Rittenhouse. However, a second motion to dismiss the possession of a dangerous weapon by a minor charge was denied.

Rittenhouse is on trial for murdering Anthony Huber and Joseph Rosenbaum as well as shooting and injuring Gaige Grosskreutz at a protest in Kenosha, WI. Rittenhouse has pled not guilty to all the charges against him.
