Police Investigating shots fired on Madison's west side

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- Madison police are investigating a report of shots fired on the city's west side Friday afternoon.

Officers were called to the 5800 block of Raymond Road around 3:03 p.m. on Friday.

Initial investigation shows seven to eight juvenile males were walking on one side of the street. Officials say shots were heard after the boys began yelling at three males on the other side of the street.

No one was injured, however a passing car was hit, as well as a parked truck.

Tom Nelson was driving the car. He said the visor next to his head exploded. He stopped to call 911 and that's when he noticed a bullet in the front seat.

"At first I thought it was a firework and I was angry that someone would have thrown it in a vehicle," said Nelson. "And then when I saw the bullet, it got me more scared and relieved that I'm going to make it through a little longer."

Shell casings were recovered at the scene.

Police have contacted and identified several males at the scene. No arrests have been made at this time though.
