A small shrine at an intersection in downtown Kenosha, Wisconsin, memorializes Anthony Huber and Joseph "JoJo" Rosenbaum, two men who were shot dead at close range during an ugly, chaotic night of protests and rioting late last month.

The accused gunman, 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse, who was seen at the protest toting an AR-15 rifle, faces two charges of intentional homicide and one of attempted homicide.

Rittenhouse has emerged as the latest conservative cause célèbre in a highly politicized campaign over gun rights in the U.S. and the perennial debate about armed citizens defending themselves.
