One of the two protesters fatally shot in Kenosha, Wisconsin, on Tuesday night by a 17-year-old vigilante gunman from Illinois was filmed taunting a group of armed individuals moments before he was killed.
‘Shoot me, n*****,’ 36-year-old Kenosha resident Joseph Rosenbaum is heard saying in the video in which he is seen confronting several armed men during the unrest that followed last Sunday’s police shooting of 29-year-old black man Jacob Blake.
One of the armed men wearing a black baseball cap and what appears to be tactical gear on his body then turns around and takes a few steps toward Rosenbaum. He then walks past Rosenbaum without incident.
Kyle Rittenhouse, of Antioch, Illinois, has been charged with fatally shooting Rosenbaum and 26-year-old Anthony Huber and wounding a third – Gaige Grosskreutz, 26.
