CHICAGO — Bail for Kyle Rittenhouse, an Illinois teenager accused of killing two men during protests over a police shooting in Kenosha, Wis., was set at $2 million on Monday as Mr. Rittenhouse made a first appearance in a Wisconsin court.

The father of one of the men who died urged the court not to allow Mr. Rittenhouse’s release, warning that he is a flight risk.

“Kyle Rittenhouse thinks he’s above the law and he’s been treated as such by law enforcement,” said John Huber, the father of Anthony M. Huber, who was killed in the shooting.

Mr. Rittenhouse has become a cause célèbre for conservatives who insist he acted in self-defense, and donations have poured into a legal defense fund on his behalf.

Even President Trump suggested shortly after the shooting that Mr. Rittenhouse’s actions were legitimate.

“He was trying to get away from them, I guess, it looks like,” Mr. Trump said in a news conference in August.

Mr. Rittenhouse, 17, has been charged with six criminal counts, including first-degree intentional homicide, for the shooting on Aug. 25 that left two protesters dead and a third injured. »
