Details

  "Never in my life would I have thought I would have been shot," an emotional 18-year-old Madison woman told a responding officer. She was walking near Fast Track, 3505 E. Washington Ave., when a gunman - who was also on foot and in the driveway of the gas station - began firing at a car that was speeding away from the business at a high speed. Based on the number of casings collected, at least eight bullets were discharged. One hit the victim. She was not a target, nor was the Kwik Trip across the street. It had a window that was struck by the gunfire. The victim suffered a non-life-threating wound. Witnesses provided a description of the shooter, and that is posted above. It's believed he got into a car immediately after the shooting. Anyone with information is asked to contact Madison Area Crime Stoppers at (608) 266-6014.
