Teen arrested in Iowa for Wisconsin mall shooting

GRAND CHUTE, Wis. (WKBT) –  A teen wanted in connection with the fatal shooting at a mall in eastern Wisconsin is in custody.

The Grand Chute Police Department says U.S. Marshals arrested 17-year-old Dezman Ellis Thursday afternoon in Des Moines, Iowa.

The teen’s arrest comes days after authorities say he fatally shot 19-year-old Jovanni Frausto of Neenah and wounded another person inside the Fox River Mall outside Appleton.

Prosecutors say the shooting Sunday came after the two began arguing over a girl who was with Ellis, and forced crowds of people to shelter in place inside the mall.

Outagamie County prosecutors filed charges of first-degree intentional homicide and  recklessly endangering safety against Ellis on Tuesday.
