Police-obsessed gunman, 17, who is charged with murder of two BLM protesters during Kenosha riots sat front row at a Trump MAGA rally

Footage has emerged showing the 17-year-old gunman charged with the fatal shooting of two BLM protesters in Kenosha, attending a Trump rally earlier this year - as it's revealed the teen had bragged about his role as a vigilante in an interview taken moments before the bloodshed on Tuesday. 

Kyle Rittenhouse was charged with first degree intentional homicide on Wednesday after viral video footage showed the teen shooting three people during the third night of Jacob Blake protests in Wisconsin. 

Two people were shot dead just before midnight on Tuesday - one in the head and one in the chest. One of the slain men has since been identified as Anthony Huber. A third man, a 36-year-old from West Allis, Wisconsin, was shot in the arm but his wounds were not believed to life-threatening. 

According to video footage and witness accounts, the gunman first shot someone at a parking lot, then jogged away, stumbled and fell in the street, and opened fire again as members of the crowd closed in him.

Rittenhouse was arrested on Wednesday afternoon in his hometown of Antioch, Illinois - 15 miles from Kenosha. Court records say the teenager 'fled the state of Wisconsin with the intent to avoid prosecution for that offense'. 

In the wake of his arrest, photos and videos have emerged indicating the teenager had a strong admiration for law enforcement, with much of his social media containing references to Blue Lives Matter - the movement that supports police.
