Police briefly shut down part of a west Madison road Thursday following a foot pursuit incident.

Madison police said officers were pursuing people in the area at about 8:30 p.m. Police Lt. Lori Chalecki said the police activity on the 5000 block of Raymond Road was part of the investigation into shots fired less than a half-mile away on Russett Road Thursday morning.

While the road was closed, officers at the scene told bystanders near Raymond Road at Leland Drive to stay away and said it wasn't safe to get closer to where police were concentrated.

Raymond Road was re-opened less than an hour later. Chalecki said police had a person of interest in custody for questioning but no one had been arrested Thursday night.

Police Sgt. Michael Alvarez said officers remained at the scene in the Russett Road area Thursday night and there was no danger to the public.
