Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year-old who shot and killed two people during riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin, will not be facing additional charges in the state of Illinois, the Lake County state attorney's office said on Tuesday.
Antioch police say Rittenhouse's rifle was purchased, stored, and Wisconsin, which would not violate Illinois law, the attorney's office told the Chicago Sun Times in a statement.
Rittenhouse was also never in possession of the gun in the state of Illinois, evidence shows.
Rittenhouse faces charges of first-degree intentional homicide after an incident in Kenosha, Wisconsin during the riots after the shooting of Jacob Blake. Rittenhouse discharged his weapon, killing two protestors, and also shot and wounded a third.
He also faces charges of underage firearm possession in Wisconsin.
Rittenhouse is currently being held in the Lake County Juvenile Detention Center without bond. He is due in court on October 30.
