A South Side man was convicted Wednesday of fatally shooting a teenager on a CTA bus as he fired toward another passenger he was arguing with.
Milton Wardlaw, 27, was not acting in self-defense when he pointed the gun at the stranger who had bumped into him seconds earlier on the No. 71 bus, Assistant Cook County State’s Attorneys David Weiner and Karin Swanson said in their closing arguments.
Jurors weighing in on Wardlaw’s fate apparently agreed and convicted Wardlaw with first-degree murder in the death of Kiyanna Salter, 17. He also was found guilty of aggravated discharge of a firearm for shooting at the bus a second time as it drove off on Oct. 5, 2008.
Wardlaw showed no emotion as the verdicts were read after nearly five hours of deliberation. Salter’s mother quickly left the courtroom, sobbing loudly.
