SUN PRAIRIE, Wis. - The Sun Prairie Police Department is looking for a person of interest in a fatal shooting early Sunday morning.

At approximately 1:30 a.m. on Sunday police responded to a report of a shooting in an apartment complex parking lot on the 400 block of South Bird Street.

Upon arrival, police said they found a 33-year-old male victim with fatal injuries. 

The Sun Prairie Police Department, Dane County Sheriff's Office and Wisconsin Crime Lab are investigating the homicide. 

Sun Prairie police Officer Jon Lothe said investigators have identified a person of interest and are looking for them.

"Right now, it's still an active, ongoing investigation," Lothe said. "We're interviewing all the witnesses who were on scene at the time and we do have a person of interest we will be talking to as soon as we can find that subject."

Lothe said police believe the shooting was targeted and, as of now, unrelated to any recent incidents in the Madison area. 

"We're not sure if they knew each other, but it was not a random act," Lothe said.

Lothe said this was Sun Prairie's first homicide since September 2015. 

Anyone with information is asked to call the Sun Prairie Police Department at 608-837-7336.
