A jury has cleared Kyle Rittenhouse of all charges, after nearly four days of deliberations.

The jury returned its verdict early Thursday afternoon, with the 18-year-old Rittenhouse found not guilty on five felony counts, including intentional homicide, reckless homicide, and endangering safety.

The trial centered on the events of last summer’s protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin, where Rittenhouse fatally shot two protesters and wounded a third.

He claimed he was acting in self-defense while being chased by a group of protesters, some of whom were armed.

The anonymous, 12-member jury just cleared Rittenhouse on the five felony charges he was facing. See below for a breakdown of the list and the max sentence for each:

First Degree Reckless Homicide, Use of a Dangerous Weapon (Max 60 Years; Weapon Modifier +5) — NOT GUILTY

First Degree Recklessly Endangering Safety, Use of a Dangerous Weapon (Max 12 1/2 Years; Weapon Modifier +5) — NOT GUILTY
