A friend of Kyle Rittenhouse is accused of supplying the gun used in the Aug. 25 shooting of three men in Kenosha, Wis. Rittenhouse is pictured here in court on Oct. 30.

Kyle Rittenhouse, the young gunman facing criminal charges for allegedly killing two men and seriously injuring a third this summer in Kenosha, Wis., entered not guilty pleas to all charges during an arraignment Tuesday.

Rittenhouse, now 18, appeared before Kenosha County Circuit Court Commissioner Loren Keating by video link from the office of his attorney Mark Richards. He is free on $2 million bail, largely provided by donors. Rittenhouse was wearing a light blue shirt and dark tie along with a black facial covering

Keating asked Rittenhouse if he understood that the previously imposed conditions of bond and bail "remain in full force and effect."

"Yes sir," Rittenhouse replied.

The charges facing Rittenhouse include first-degree intentional homicide, first-degree reckless homicide and attempted first-degree intentional reckless homicide. An additional charge of violation of curfew the night of the shootings was added last week, the Journal Sentinel reported.

Rittenhouse is accused of shooting three men: Anthony Huber and Joseph Rosenbaum, who were killed, and Gaige Grosskreutz, who was seriously wounded.

This is a developing story and will be updated later in the day.
