KENOSHA, Wis. — The first man killed by Kyle Rittenhouse on the streets of Kenosha was shot at a range of just a few feet and had soot injuries that could indicate he had his hand over the barrel of Rittenhouse's rifle, a pathologist testified Tuesday.

Police responded to a bank robbery call at 2:22 p.m. Monday at the First Mid Bank 300 S. Division St. Carterville. 

The police departments of Carterville, Crainville and Cambria all responded to the scene.

PORTLAND, Ore. — Political appointees in the Trump administration relied on faulty science to justify stripping habitat protections for the imperiled northern spotted owl, U.S. wildlife officials said Tuesday as they struck down a rule that would have opened millions of acres of forest in Oregon, Washington and California to potential logging.

No injuries occurred during the robbery, police said. 

No further details were immediately available.
