2929 E Washington Ave


Three 17 yr olds


There was a report of shots fired from the parking lot of 2929 E Washington Ave with two younger individuals as the suspects.  One of these rounds went through the front window of a residence on N. Oak St. but thankfully there were no injuries.  Responding officers observed two suspicious individuals in the Madison East Shopping Center parking lot, who took off running.  One male suspect was found lying down hiding in a yard.  Three handguns were recovered near him, one of which had been reported as stolen in a burglary.  Another suspect was arrested after a foot pursuit.  While he was being taken into custody another individual seemed to want to intercede on his behalf.  Officers recognized him and knew of probable cause to arrest him from an incident in McFarland, so he was taken into custody as well.  The suspect located while hiding was booked into the Dane County Jail for Armed Robbery and Physical Abuse to a Child stemming from a previous incident.  The suspect arrested after the foot pursuit was booked into the Dane County Jail for Obstructing an Officer.  Other than that obstructing charge there are no other charges from this incident until further investigation takes place.
