MADISON, Wis. — Madison police are investigating after three shell casings were found following a shots fired report Tuesday night.

According to an incident report, neighbors told police a couple of young men were running around backyards in the 800 block of West Lakeside Street around 6:45 p.m. Tuesday.

The report said several shell casings were found in the street, but no injuries or property damage was reported.

Police said one family said someone knocked at their backdoor while on a cell phone and was asking for someone to come pick him up.

Officials said other people who were outside saw a man yell into the phone, “Come pick me up.”

He got into a dark-colored sedan with tinted windows moments later, according to the report.

The report said another witness saw a second man get into a dark-colored minivan on Emerson Street.

Lakeside St. was briefly blocked for investigation as a result of the incident.
