A video showed a Wisconsin crime lab technician feeding the gun into a mechanical shredder.

The video, obtained by an NBC affiliate, shows the gun go through a large industrial shredder. A judge ruled in in January that it could be destroyed after Rittenhouse’s lawyer, Mark Richards, requested it be done.


Rittenhouse said he did not want it to be sold and used as a trophy. The agreement called for the process to be recorded.

Rittenhouse was acquitted of homicide charges in the fatal shootings of Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, and Anthony Huber, 26. He was also acquitted of an attempted homicide charge in the wounding of Gaige Grosskreutz.

The incident took place during a rowdy demonstration after the shooting of Jacob Blake by a Kenosha police officer. Rittenhouse joined a local group to protect businesses after a pattern of senseless destruction in previous demonstrations.
