Rittenhouse trial day six

KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) - Prosecutors have rested their case against Kyle Rittenhouse after 5 1/2 days of testimony in which they sought to portray him as the instigator in the shootings that left two men dead and a third wounded during street protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

One of the final prosecution witnesses Tuesday was a forensic pathologist who analyzed drone video - just obtained by the prosecution late last week - that gave jurors their first glimpse of Rittenhouse shooting Joseph Rosenbaum, the first of those shot.

Prosecutors used extensive video and witnesses, including two former military veterans who were on the streets alongside Rittenhouse, in a bid to convince the jury he was the aggressor.
