Men reportedly armed with gun chasing teen

Madison Police Department

Police said a west Madison teen was being chased Friday by an armed group of men.

Madison police said a concerned North Wickham Court resident called for police Friday at 4:28 p.m. after spotting a neighborhood teenager being chased by four young men, one of whom was reportedly armed with a “short shotgun,” according to the witness.

Officers arrived to learn the four men had driven off, but they found the 17-year-old who had been chased. He said he was being pursued, though he didn’t know why, by people he believed to be gang affiliated.

The teen said he was too busy running to notice any weapons. He was not caught and not injured.
