Details

The MPD was called to a hospital last night after a 19-year old Madison man showed up with a head injury. The victim said he had been struck with a gun while being robbed near the 400 block of W. Gilman St. around 2:30 a.m. Monday morning.

He said his phone was dead, and that is why he did not contact police.

The crime took place in a parking lot, and victim said he and a couple of his friends were robbed by several other young men. He said two in the other group were armed: one with a handgun, another with a shotgun.

This does not appear to be a random robbery.
