Bradford High remains closed today; person of interest in custody


Kenosha Unified School District officials announced that Bradford High School will be closed today due to yesterday's fatal shooting of Bradford student Kaylie Juga on the 10900 block of 66th Street and the continued search for a person of interest in her death, Martice Fuller.

At about 6:25 am Martice Fuller was taken into custody without further incident by Kenosha Police Detectives in Racine.

Detectives are not seeking any other persons of interest. Additional information may be available by 10 am, police reported.

Despite this update, Bradford High School will remain closed today.


"The Kenosha Unified School District sends our sincere condolences to the Juga family. Our thoughts will be with them as the navigate the difficult days, weeks and months ahead. Counseling services will be available next week for any students and staff needing support following this tragic incident," the district said. 

A message sent to Bradford families this morning from KUSD officials announcing the closure stated that the decision was made "for the safety of our students and staff," and that the cancellation would include before and after-school acitivities.

"In addition, there will be additional police presence in and around the community today," the message said. "This is an added level of security while the suspect remains at large."
