UPDATE 1 - 3/31/2023

Detectives with the Madison Police Department have arrested a man in connection to a February shooting.

Vercell C. Moorehead was arrested Tuesday as members of our Violent Crime Unit executed a search warrant at a home on Straubel Court.

As detectives were on scene, he attempted to jump off a second-story balcony. A loaded gun was also recovered along with a large amount of marijuana. A photo of the recovered gun is attached to this release.

Moorehead's arrest stems from a shooting that occurred on Straubel Ct. on Feb. 14.

During that incident, an occupied car was hit by bullets. Two young children were inside the car at the time. A fired bullet was located resting on the seat portion of the car seat.

Moorehead was arrested for first-degree recklessly endangering safety, being a felon in possession of a firearm and possession with intent to deliver THC. He is also on probation in Illinois.
