Photos: Rittenhouse's rifle destroyed by Wisconsin crime lab

The Kenosha Police Department first told FOX 6 Milwaukee that the rifle was destroyed at the crime lab on Feb. 25, 2022 — about four months after the 19-year-old was acquitted of five charges, including reckless and intentional homicide charges, in November 2021.

Video footage from the department shows officers putting the rifle and its components through a GunBusters firearms pulverizer. Remnants of the destroyed firearm are discarded into a bucket beneath the machine.
