“Words cannot express the sadness over the loss of this innocent child. As a father of three girls, I am heartbroken. As a resident of Milwaukee, I am frustrated and angry. As County Executive, the death of Za’layia is another critical reminder of the need for us to stand together and say enough of this senseless violence.
I ask anyone who knows about the shooting to call the police. Nothing will bring Za’layia back, but the people responsible need to be held accountable.”
