Vehicle involved in shooting found with bullet holes in Sun Prairie, police tell Madison alder

MADISON, Wis. - A vehicle believed to be involved in a shots fired incident that damaged three residences Wednesday night on Madison's east side was found in Sun Prairie, Madison police told a city alder.

Madison police responded to shots fired near the corner of Rieder and Portage roads just before 6 p.m. Wednesday.

Currently, police have confirmed three residences, two of which had residents in them, were hit by bullets. No residents were struck by the bullets, according to Lt. Mindy Winter. 

Numerous casings of two different calibers were found at the scene, but investigators are still working to identify the individuals in this incident.

According to a blog post by Madison Alder Samba Baldeh, the shooting involves at least two people shooting at each other.

Baldeh said police told him someone in a vehicle driving on Portage Road began shooting at a person walking on the sidewalk. The person on the sidewalk then shot back at the vehicle, police said.

The vehicle believed to be involved was found at a Sun Prairie business and has several bullet holes, but the driver or person shooting was not found, Baldeh said.

The police do not believe anyone was injured, and the people involved appeared to be targeting each other, according to the blog post.

Baldeh said the duplex that was hit by stray bullets does not appear to be associated with anyone involved in the shootings.

One area resident told News 3 he was walking his dog when he had to take cover when the shots were fired.
