KENOSHA -- Kenosha's Bradford High School will remain closed Friday after the arrest of a suspect in a student's shooting death, district officials say.

Earlier Friday, the district announced it would close Bradford Friday because 15-year-old Martice L. Fuller, then a person of interest in 16-year-old Kaylie Juga's shooting death, had not yet been taken into custody.

"Bradford High School will be closed today, Friday, May 10, for the safety of our students and staff," a phone message sent to Bradford families said in part. "This includes canceling all of today’s classes and before and after school activities at Bradford. In addition, there will be additional police presence in and around the community today. This is an added level of security while the suspect remains at large."

Fuller was arrested a short time later, but a spokesperson says Bradford will remain closed.

"The Kenosha Police Department has reported to Kenosha Unified that Martice Fuller is in police custody. 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," a statement reads.
