Police: Man likely injured in Madison shots fired incident
Police believe a man who was treated at a local hospital for a gunshot wound was related to a far east Madison shots-fired incident early Saturday.
Madison police said officers responded to several reports of multiple shots fired on the 4600 block of Hayes Road at 2:49 a.m.
Madison police Officer David Dexheimer said officers found multiple gun shell casings at the scene.
About 30 minutes later, police were alerted to the arrival at a local hospital of a 20-year-old man suffering from what appeared to be non-life-threatening gunshot injuries.
“Initial indications are that this man and the reported gunshots are related,” Dexheimer said.
A 19-year-old man was shot and killed by police on the near east side Friday night, about 6 miles from the Hayes Road reports. A third firearm incident in Madison was a report of a 30-year-old man found dead from a gunshot wound on the 1400 block of Rutledge Street at 3:15 a.m. Police said it appeared the gunshot wound was self inflicted and there was no indication of a criminal act in the Rutledge Street incident, but police were investigating. Dexheimer said Saturday afternoon that though the three firearm-related incidents occurred on Madison’s east side over the course of 9 hours, it did not appear they were related.
