Richards also recounted how Rosenbaum came out of the back of a car to meet Rittenhouse before the shooting, telling the detective: “Correct me if I’m wrong, but it looks like a classic ambush.”

After prosecutors protested, Richards said: “Mr. Rosenbaum has gone into hiding as soon as my client arrives, isn’t he?”

“It appears, yes,” replied Howard.

Rittenhouse, now 18, could be in prison if convicted of a politically polarizing case that has sparked fierce debates over self-defense, vigilantism, the right to bear arms and the racial unrest that sparked the murder of George Floyd.
