KENOSHA, Wis. (CBS 58) – The Kenosha County Sheriff’s Office, Kenosha Police Department and other local leaders are facing two $10 million damage claims related to the Kyle Rittenhouse shootings on August 25.

According to court documents, the claims are being made on behalf of Gaige Grosskreutz, who was shot and by John Huber, Jr. and Karen Bloom, the parents of Anthony Huber who was shot and killed.

Both claim employees of the police and sheriff’s department were negligent.

The notices usually are precursors to lawsuits. Grosskreutz and Huber were shot by 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse during violent protests that followed the police shooting of Jacob Blake, a Black man who was left partially paralyzed when a white officer fired numerous shots into his back.

Rittenhouse, who now is 18, is free on $2 million bail while awaiting trial.
