Update on last night's events at First Street Men's Homeless Shelter

March 23, 2021 3:57 PM

Neighbors,

You may have already heard about the tragic incident that happened last night (3/22) at the First Street Temporary Shelter location. One individual was shot and transported to a local hospital for treatment. As per the latest information the injured person is in stable condition at a local hospital. This remains an active and ongoing investigation. The City staff is working to provide support and services for those facing trauma. Tonight, and over the next couple of days counselling will be available for the shelter guests. Porchlight staff are on mental health leave and Porchlight will be providing emotional support and services to their staff. I will share more information as I receive it. I am actively communicating with City staff on this situation and will keep you posted.

You can read about the incident report at https://www.cityofmadison.com/police/newsroom/incidentreports/incident.cfm?id=28289?

 

Thanks

Syed
