Graphic videos shows attack by armed rioters on Kyle Rittenhouse that led to deadly shootings in Kenosha

The gun battle that killed two and injured another in Kenosha, Wisconsin, was sparked by armed rioters who confronted heavily armed civilians trying to protect a car dealership, according to a series of graphic videos.

On-the-scene reporters caught the run-up to late Tuesday’s deadly confrontation with one even being first to aid a man who had been shot in the head, ripping off his shirt to apply pressure to his bullet wound and carrying him away to get help.

Dramatic photos then caught the apparent initial gunman being chased and attacked by a riotous mob — and opening fire as he fell to the ground.

They show him being battered with a skateboard and hit with a flying kick — while one man raises a gun just feet in front of him.

The hands-raised man appears to be the same one later pictured in agony holding a serious wound to his right arm — while still holding a handgun.

The bloodbath came during an official state of emergency curfew in the city which saw the third night of riots after the police shooting of Jacob Blake.

“It appears an armed citizen was defending the car dealership and opened fire on the rioter who was attempting to vandalize or burn the dealership down,” reporter Drew Hernandez said.

“Before this shooting took place, the rioters were planning to burn down their ‘next car dealership,'” he said, with video supposedly capturing some of the mob bragging about their intentions as they marched over.

Another clip, recorded by reporter and ex-Marine Julio Rosas, shows a wild confrontation at a dealership — with a white man yelling at members of a small militia protecting it, “Shoot me, n$gger. Shoot me, n$gger.” The same white rioter was shot in the head and killed during the melee.

Numerous gunshots are then heard in another clip — reportedly at the same location — as several people scream and flee.

Videographer Richie McGinniss of the Daily Caller was one of the first on the scene — pulling off his shirt as he tried to help the man, who twitched as he raised his head with a bullet wound on the right side of his head.

“Call the police!” several people shouted of the serious injury during massive anti-police riots.

McGinniss was one of two men who helped carry away the injured man, his site said, as others screamed for him to be rushed to the hospital.

The shooter was reportedly the same man being chased in another graphic clip from the deadly riots — firing several shots from a rifle at people who attacked him after he fell.

Kenosha police confirmed early Wednesday that two people died during the shootings, with one hospitalized with serious but non-life-threatening injuries. Two reportedly had been shot in the head, officials had said. They were still determining the victims’ names and ages as well as where they were from, they said.
