Shots Fired on Portage Road
Those of you who live in the north eastern part of the district, off of portage may have seen some unusual police presence this evening. There was shooting on portage road. Below is what I found out from the Police department.
Preliminary information is that the shooting involves at least two persons shooting at each other. Someone in a vehicle driving on Portage Rd began shooting at a person walking on the sidewalk. The person on the sidewalk then shot at the vehicle. The vehicle believed to be involved has been located at a Sun Prairie business and has several bullet holes. The person that was shooting is not yet located.
The police do not believe anyone was injured or struck by gunfire. The persons involved appear to be targeting each other and this does not appear to be a random attack. The duplex that was struck by stray bullets does not appear to be associated with any of the persons involved in the shootings.
Again this is very preliminary information as the investigation is on-going lead by the MPD Violent Crime Unit and North District Detectives and Officers.
I am working with the two district captains to organize a district wide meeting on these shooting and other issues people may want to discuss. Once a date is set I will communicate details.
If you see something, please say something.
Please let me know if anything.
