The jury in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial have come back with their verdicts: NOT GUILTY on all charges.
The jury took almost 26 hours over the course of 5 days before reaching their decision.
Rittenhouse was facing charges, including; first-degree reckless homicide, first-degree intentional homicide, attempted first-degree intentional homicide, and two counts of first-degree recklessly endangering safety.
The city of Kenosha was on edge before the deliberations ended, and many are fearful of what will happen now that Rittenhouse has been found not guilty.
