MADISON, Wis. — Madison police have two people under arrest in a shooting at a celebration of life for a homicide victim Tuesday night.
At least 300 people were gathered at Garner Park to honor the life of Maurice Bowman, killed in a shooting 10 days ago on Schroeder Road, when shots rang out around 9 p.m. At least three people were hit by bullets and two others were injured as men, women and kids ran from the scene, according to a police incident report.
Madison city crews were at the parking Wednesday morning, cleaning up the food that was left behind at the park shelter as people ran to get away from the gun shots.
Two people are under arrest in the incident, according to police. Two guns were recovered.
Police say they’ve found more than 60 shell casings from a mix of handguns and rifles. MPD’s Violent Crimes Unit also responded to interview witnesses and victims. The shooting is still under investigation.
