MADISON, Wis. — A man told dispatcher he saw someone fire a gun out of a car window Monday morning, police said.

Officers were called to the area of Buckeye Road and Stoughton Road on Madison’s east side around 9:35 a.m.

The man said the weapon seemed to be pointed at another moving vehicle, according to a release by the Madison Police Department. That person could not tell if it was a real gun or a paintball gun, the release said.

Another caller also reported hearing five or six gunshots in the same area to dispatchers.

Officers could not immediately find signs of shooting like shell casings or property damage.
