7) CENTRAL: Burglary Residential – 3:38 p.m. MPD was contacted by apartment management for a theft and residential burglary that had occurred in the 500 block of North Frances Street. Video surveillance showed the suspect (21 year old WM) taking an expensive coat from a common area in the apartment building. The video also revealed this same suspect entering an occupied apartment and taking money out of wallets while the residents were sleeping. The suspect was contacted and admitted to the aforementioned events. The subject allowed Madison Police Department to retrieve the stolen coat from his apartment. When retrieving the coat, MPD discovered some illegal drugs, which were seized for destruction. Arrest made and investigation continuing.
8) WEST: Weapons Offense/Shots Fired – 6:14 p.m. A single caller heard approximately 12 shots in the area of 100 Frigate Drive. Responding officers did not find any evidence of a shooting and the original caller would not speak with police.
9) WEST: Check Person – 6:27 p.m. MPD was contacted by a nurse regarding a 32 year old WM who was having thoughts of hurting others. Officers had contact with this same individual last week in the 6700 block of Schroeder Road, which culminated in an encounter where this same subject had to be subdued when he was armed with a bat. Officers tried multiple times to make telephone contact with the subject, who would not answer their calls. Madison Police Department then responded to the subject's address but were unable to make contact with the individual. Follow-up continuing.
10) WEST: Weapons Offense – 6:31 p.m. MPD responded to the 2300 block of Talc Trail for a 29 year old WM who had accidentally fired a round from his 9mm Glock handgun into an adjoining apartment. Officers on scene forced entry to the apartment and verified that no one was inside of this adjoining apartment. Subsequently, the 65 year old resident of the affected apartment of interest returned and was very understanding and cooperative. The 29 year old is a CCW permit holder and had been practicing with a new weapon. It appears that while practicing, this individual confused real rounds with dummy rounds. Fortunately, when this round was discharged, the bullet went through the bedroom wall into the neighbor's apartment about 4 feet above the couch and lodged in the wall near the porch door. Subject was cited for the offense.
11) EAST: Weapons Offense/Shots Fired – 7:03 p.m. MPD responded to 4102 Commercial Avenue, BP Gas, for multiple callers reporting shots fired in the parking lot. The investigation revealed that a handgun was pulled and four rounds were fired at another vehicle entering the lot. The suspect is an AAM and he may be driving a dark colored Dodge Charger. One of the rounds hit the store window but it did not penetrate the glass. All parties involved fled the area prior to police arrival. Based on trajectory investigation, had this round penetrated the glass of the store, the clerk would have been hit based on where he was standing. Investigation continuing.
12) NORTH: Robbery Armed – 7:23 p.m. A 54 year old WM pizza delivery driver had just completed a delivery in the 2400 block of Fremont Avenue. After the delivery, an AAM suspect, approximately 18-19 years old, approached the driver and pointed a handgun at him and demanded money. The driver refused and walked back to the home where he made the delivery and began knocking on the door. The suspect then fled on foot. Investigation continuing.
13) EAST: Missing Adult – 10:08 p.m. Officers responded to a report of female who may be missing from the 300 block of Dempsey Road. A caller reported a 30 year old WF sent an email indicating she was pulling over in her vehicle and going into a field. This female reportedly has a history of suicidal ideations. The caller was not extremely cooperative as he would not provide the email and was upset officers were not looking for her as they tried to gather information of what precipitated the sending of this email. ATL was completed, the female was listed in NCIC, and a phone ping was attempted with negative results. Subsequent to all of this, the female returned home and there are no problems at this time.
14) CENTRAL: Adult Arrested Person – 12:59 a.m. Officers working a downtown special assignment were present in the 600 block of University Avenue when a disturbance spilled out of the Double U Tavern.
