KENOSHA, WISCONSIN - NOVEMBER 16: Kyle Rittenhouse sits next to the tumbler that he will use to select the jurors who will not participate in deliberations during his trial at the Kenosha County Courthouse on November 16, 2021 in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Rittenhouse is accused of shooting three demonstrators, killing two of them, during a night of unrest that erupted in Kenosha after a police officer shot Jacob Blake seven times in the back while being arrested in August 2020. Rittenhouse, from Antioch, Illinois, was 17 at the time of the shooting and armed with an assault rifle. He faces counts of felony homicide and felony attempted homicide.

Following a full day of deliberations Tuesday, the jury in the Kyle Rittenhouse case will reconvene this morning and head back into discussions. The jury was mostly quiet on the first day, sending just two notes to the judge throughout the course of the day, asking for extra copies of instructions.

A few dozen protesters gathered outside the courthouse on Tuesday, both those in support of Rittenhouse and those advocating for the teen’s conviction — he’s been charged with five felonies, including first degree reckless homicide. While Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers (D) put hundreds of National Guard troops outside Kenosha on standby earlier this week, the Kenosha sheriff’s department said Tuesday it wasn’t expecting to take any extreme measures yet — like curfews or road closures — as the country awaits a verdict. The Rittenhouse homicide trial has been ongoing for two weeks. It remains unclear if the jury will be able to reach a verdict today.
