Police investigate north side shooting

Police: Man drives by officers in damaged car, arrested on 5th OWI

A man was shot and injured after gunfire erupted on Madison’s north side late Wednesday night.

The victim was taken to a hospital and underwent surgery. Police said the victim, a 27-year-old man, is in serious but stable condition Thursday.

The shooting happened around 10:50 p.m. on Brentwood Parkway near Warner Park.

Witnesses said there were several people outside during the shooting because of a prior disturbance. They said that cars had been racing up and down the street, and a cat was run over. The shooting happened shortly after that, residents said.

“Two guys had come running out of that parking lot and you heard gunshots and that guy, he just dropped. You knew he got hit,” said onlooker Dan Evans. “And I just ran down there and tried to help him out until we got an EMT over there.”

Evans said he heard about 15 gunshots.

“(The victim) was in a lot of pain, a lot of pain. But there was a lot of gunshots — somebody unloaded a whole clip,” Evans said.

Police described the scene as chaotic.

“There were several vehicles that left the area, a couple of which were stopped. A couple we’re still looking for,” said Police Capt. Cam McLay. “We do not have our suspects detained and we’re looking for any and all leads people might be able to provide us in terms of who we should be looking for.”

Police said the shooter and victim knew each other. Police said they have interviewed several people following the shooting, but no arrests have been made.

Authorities said that anyone with information about the shooting is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 608-266-6014.
