Gaige Grosskreutz, who was shot by 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse in Kenosha, Wisconsin, last summer, tried to backtrack the sworn testimony he gave in court this week during a media blitz on Friday.

Grosskreutz admitted in court that Rittenhouse did not shoot at him until he pointed his own gun at the teenager. He said that it was only after he lunged forward, bringing the barrel of his own gun down toward Rittenhouse’s head that Rittenhouse fired a shot and hit Grosskreutz in the arm.

But during an interview with Good Morning America, Grosskreutz tried to claim that he was shot by Rittenhouse while his hands were in the air.

“I do believe that in that photo, given the right narrative, one could suggest that yes, I was pointing my weapon at the defendant,” he said. “But when you play it as a movie or look at different stills, my arm was being vaporized as I was allegedly pointing my weapon at the defendant.

“It’s completely inconsistent with the physiology of my wound,” Grosskreutz claimed, “that he would have shot me while my weapon was pointed at his head”

Host Michael Strahan clarified: “You weren’t pointing your gun at him, is that what you’re saying?”

“That’s absolutely what I’m saying, yes,” he replied.

He repeated that claim in a later interview on CNN:
