Ex-boyfriend fires shot at, strangles ex-girlfriend, police say

MADISON, Wis. - A Madison man faces several charges after shooting at, battering and strangling his ex-girlfriend Tuesday night, police said in a release.

The 26-year-old woman got out of her School Road apartment around 8 p.m. after her ex-boyfriend, 27-year-old Jonathan C. Williams, of Madison, made statements suggesting that if he could not have her, no one could, according to the release.

Officials said the woman charged Williams, who was still pointing a handgun at her after firing a shot, and they fought for control of the handgun.

The woman was eventually able to push Williams down and run out of the apartment, down the road and into another apartment building, where she called for help, according to the release.

Police said the woman claims to have suffered a shrapnel wound to a finger after the shot was fired.

According to the release, Williams drove away from the scene, but he was later taken into custody by Milwaukee police.

Williams was brought back to Dane County and faces tentative charges of first-degree reckless endangerment, impede breathing by pressure on throat or neck and disorderly conduct with a domestic enhancer.
