Details

A Madison teen chased a suspicious person out of his backyard and ended up with a gun pointed at him Monday night. The 17-year old said he was socializing with friends on the deck of his family's home when he heard rustling in some bushes. Because of recent area burglaries, he and a buddy decided to investigate. As they did, they saw a man running from the area. The victim gave chase and ended up confronting the stranger behind a home on Westbourne St. The teen said the man pointed a handgun at him, and he slowly backed away to call police.
