One of the two protesters fatally shot in Kenosha, Wisconsin, on Tuesday night by Kyle Rittenhouse, 17 from Illinois was filmed taunting a group of armed individuals moments before he was killed.
‘Shoot me, n*****,’ 36-year-old Kenosha resident Joseph Rosenbaum is heard saying in the video in which he is seen confronting several armed men during the unrest that followed last Sunday’s police shooting of 29-year-old black man Jacob Blake.
The Daily Mail reports:
One of the armed men wearing a black baseball cap and what appears to be tactical gear on his body then turns around and takes a few steps toward Rosenbaum. He then walks past Rosenbaum without incident.

Attorneys representing Rittenhouse have said he acted to defend himself.
Kenosha County prosecutors said in court records this week that Rosenbaum was the first person Rittenhouse shot at around 11:45pm on Tuesday.
Prosecutors said Rosenbaum followed Rittenhouse into a used car lot, where he threw a plastic bag at the gunman and attempted to take the weapon from him.
The medical examiner found that Rosenbaum was shot in the groin, back and left hand.
