    Friend, 19, charged with buying Kyle Rittenhouse the rifle that was used to kill two people during riots in Kenosha

    • Dominick Black was charged in Wisconsin on November 3 with two felony counts of supplying a dangerous weapon to a minor causing death
    • Black allegedly bought Rittenhouse, 17, the rifle he used to fatally shoot Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber and wound a third man, Gaige Grosskreutz
    • It was allegedly Black who invited Rittenhouse to help him guard Kenosha
    • Rioters rocked the city for several nights in August after a white police officer shot Jacob Blake, a black man, in the back seven times during domestic dispute

    A 19-year-old has been charged with supplying the gun police say Kyle Rittenhouse used to kill two people during race riots in Kenosha in August.

    Dominick Black was charged in Wisconsin on November 3 with two felony counts of supplying a dangerous weapon to a minor causing death, it emerged today.

    A criminal complaint alleges that Black asked his friend, 17-year-old Rittenhouse, of Antioch, Illionis, to help him guard businesses in Kenosha on the night of August 25.

    Rioters rocked the city for several nights after a white police officer shot African American Jacob Blake in the back seven times during a domestic dispute.

    The shooting left Blake paralyzed from the waist down and came after months of similar unrest following the death of George Floyd in Minnesota.

    Black and Rittenhouse went to Black’s stepfather’s house to get an assault-style rifle that Rittenhouse could use that night, the complaint said.

    Kenosha County prosecutors say Rittenhouse shot and killed Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber and wounded a third man Gaige Grosskreutz on the streets of Kenosha on August 25

    Kenosha County prosecutors say Rittenhouse shot and killed Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber and wounded a third man Gaige Grosskreutz on the streets of Kenosha on August 25

    Wisconsin law prohibits minors from carrying or possessing firearms unless they’re hunting.

    The complaint alleges that Rittenhouse used the rifle to fatally shoot Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber and wound a third man, Gaige Grosskreutz. 

    Rittenhouse has been charged with multiple counts, including intentional homicide and illegally possessing a gun.

    His attorneys contend he was acting in self-defense. The case has been a rallying point for conservatives upset with property destruction during protests across the country this year.

    Police first met Black at the Rittenhouse family’s apartment in Antioch, where he told them he had the rifle that Rittenhouse used in the trunk of his car and that he’d given Rittenhouse the weapon.

    Police recovered the rifle as well as another rifle Black carried during the protest from the car.

    According to Antioch police reports, Black’s stepfather said Black bought the gun for Rittenhouse in Ladysmith, Wisconsin, using Rittenhouse’s money but put the gun in his own name.

    Black told police that when they went to his stepfather’s house he was concerned about Rittenhouse having the gun because he wasn’t 18, but if he told Rittenhouse he couldn’t have it Rittenhouse ‘would have thrown a fit,’ the reports said.

    Kyle Rittenhouse, 17, had his bail set at $2 million during his initial court appearance in Wisconsin's Kenosha County on Monday. He was extradited from Illinois on Friday (above) despite appeals from his attorneys

    Black made his initial court appearance Monday. Court Commissioner Loren Keating set his bail at $2,500 cash and scheduled a preliminary hearing for November 19. 

    Black’s attorney, Robert Keller, didn’t immediately return a message left at his office after the court appearance.

    Black could face up to 25 years in prison if convicted on the two felony counts of supplying a dangerous weapon to a minor causing death.
