MILWAUKEE – The Milwaukee County Transit System (MCTS) shares the family’s and community’s sadness over the death of Za’layia Jenkins. Za’layia’s mother works for MCTS in the Customer Service Department.

Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele released the following statement:

“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.”
