Police stop vehicle possibly connected to near west side shooting

Two people are in custody in connection to a shooting on Madison’s west side Monday afternoon, Madison police said.

One person was injured in the shooting that happened around 12:40 p.m. at the intersection of Hillcrest and Alden drives, officials said.

A witness heard multiple rounds fired and then saw an SUV driving away from the area, according to a release from Madison police. As the vehicle left, a witness saw several people standing on a street corner, and one of them matched the description of a man who later showed up at a local hospital.

The 20-year-old man that was injured was at a home in the 3900 block of Hillcrest Drive when armed people arrived, according to the release. The man was shot as he fled the home. He suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

A vehicle believed to be associated with the incident was located and stopped by officers just hours after the shooting, according to the release. Evidence was located in the vehicle and two people were taken into custody on non-related charges.

The shooting happened in the intersection and not at a home, and officers found a number of shell casings in the roadway during the investigation, police said.

The 20-year-old man that was injured showed up at a local hospital with an apparent gunshot wound, officials said.

Police said the injured man does not live in the area, and the shooting appears to be a targeted act of violence.
