Black on Black Crime: Third Teen Arrested in Murder of 11-Year-Old Anisa Scott


A Wisconsin teenager was arrested in the shooting death of an 11-year-old girl who was struck by a stray bullet while riding in a vehicle last week.

Jerry L. Ward, 17, of Madison, had a handgun when he was arrested Wednesday, said Madison Police Chief Vic Wahl, the Wisconsin State Journal reported. He is the third person arrested in connection with the death of Anisa Scott.

He is charged with burglary, and robbery with use of force and homicide, according to records from the Dane County jail. The burglary charge is related to looting during the first night of protests in Madison after the May 25 death of George Floyd while in police custody in Minneapolis.
