Police: Masked men knock on resident's door, shoot him in struggle

Two intruders wearing bandanas flee after shots fired, police say

MADISON, Wis. - A 33-year-old Madison man was shot twice during a struggle with two men who knocked on his door Monday night.

Police said the victim responded to a knock at his door at about 9:45 p.m. and was confronted by two men who he said were both wearing bandanas -- one handkerchief red and the other white -- to cover their faces. The man said he reached for the gun and began wrestling with the intruder when the gun fired. The Flower Lane resident was shot in the back and the elbow, police said.

The victim told police the intruders were both black males in their 20s wearing black hoodies, jeans and the bandanas.

This is the second time this Madison resident has been the victim of violence at his home in five months. Police said he reported an attempted burglary at his apartment in May. The man claimed four or five teens kicked in his door late at night, but fled when he grabbed a baseball bat.
