4501 Verona Road (BP Gas Station)


Male, age 30, Fitchburg


A 30-year-old Fitchburg man told police he got into a dispute with several men with whom he is acquainted and that this ended with shots being fired at his car.

The victim said the men robbed him of cash while he was parked outside the BP gas station, 4501 Verona Rd. The suspects took off in a car, and he chased after them in his. While both cars were in the 1900 block of Whenona Dr., shots rang out. The victim says someone from the other car appeared to be firing at him. Shell casings were recovered in the roadway. There were no reports of injuries or property damage.

The MPD is in the process of trying to positively identify suspects.

The Madison Police Department responded to the BP Gas Station on Verona Road after receiving a report of an armed robbery with the use of a handgun.  While responding to that location, police were further alerted to an incident of shots fired on the nearby street of Whenona Way (the 1900 block). 

It was determined that these two incidents were related after the initial investigation.  All parties had left the gas station however, including the victim.  Evidence was located in the 1900 block of Whenona Drive that confirmed shots were fired in that area.  From the initial investigation, it appears the victim (who is not believed to be injured) may have known some of the parties that were involved in the robbery.

This incident is still under investigation.  Anyone with any information on this incident is encouraged to contact the Madison Police Department or the Madison area Crimestoppers program.
