KENOSHA, Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – protester and volunteer medic wounded on the streets of Kenosha by Kyle Rittenhouse says he was pointing his own gun at the rifle-toting Rittenhouse when the young man shot him in the arm.

He recounted under cross examination how he drew his own pistol and pointed it at Rittenhouse just before he was shot.

Rittenhouse contends he was acting in self defense. He faces life in prison on the most serious charge.
