Man leads officers on vehicle, foot pursuit in west Madison area
A man was arrested after a report of a person with a gun on Madison’s west side early Wednesday, but no firearm was recovered, police said.
Madison police said officers responded to a report of a man with a gun on Heritage Circle at 12:36 a.m. Police said the original call was regarding a disturbance between 42-year-old Akeem O. Musa, of Madison, and people he knows in that area.
Musa reportedly fled as police arrived. A vehicle was found abandoned and running on Euclid Avenue, about 2 1/2 miles north of Heritage Circle. There was a handgun holster in the car, but no firearm was found.
Musa was taken into custody in the backyard of a home in the 3900 block of Birch Avenue, police said. He denied having a gun.
Musa was arrested on suspicion of disorderly conduct, criminal damage to property, resisting an officer and a parole violation, according to the report.
Madison police said officers planned to check the area of the foot chase during the daylight hours Wednesday in search of anything that may have been dropped. As of Wednesday afternoon, no gun or other item had been recovered, according to the report.
