Weapons Violation

Incident Date

2000 Fisher St


Female, age 17, Madison


The victim, a 17-year-old from Madison, suffered an arm injury. It is not clear what caused it, but she drove herself to a hospital for treatment. Her car had been hit with bullets, but it does not appear she was the intended target.

A SUV, which also appears to have damage from bullets, was located near the scene.

Detectives from the MPD's Violent Crime Unit are trying to determine who the intended target/targets might be, but do not believe this was random.

No suspect has been identified.
