Dozens of people were screaming and running out of the building as officers approached. Officers ran up 12 flights of stairs in order to reach and help people.

At least ten people were hurt. Not all of their injuries are gunshot wounds. The victims are between 14 and 23-years-old. People are still contacting dispatch to report injuries or showing up at area hospitals for medical care. None of the injuries are considered life-threatening. 

No arrests have been made.

The Violent Crime Unit is leading this investigation. Detectives are currently talking with victims and witnesses and reviewing digital evidence.

EMS with the Madison Fire Department provided outstanding emergency care to the victims. We thank them for their swift response and all they've done to care for our community this morning.
