KYLE Rittenhouse broke down in tears on Friday after he was found not guilty of killing two men.
Rittenhouse was acquitted of all charges after pleading self-defense in the deadly Kenosha shootings that became a flashpoint in the debate over guns, vigilantism and racial injustice in the US.
Rittenhouse, 18, began to choke up, fell to the floor and then hugged one of his attorneys upon hearing the verdict.
Rittenhouse quickly rushed out of the courthouse and was whisked away in a black Chevrolet Equinox.
The Sun snapped Rittenhouse's face beaming as he sat in the back seat of the vehicle as he left court a free man.
He had been charged with homicide, attempted homicide and reckless endangering after killing two men and wounding a third with an AR-style semi-automatic rifle during a tumultuous night of protests over police violence against black people in the summer of 2020.
