MADISON (WKOW) -- The Madison Police Department is looking for a suspect who "may be armed and should be considered dangerous" following a shooting at the temporary men's shelter on the near east side.

Police Chief Shon Barnes said two officers were in the area for a non-related call around 7:20 p.m. Monday when they heard gunshots from inside the former City Fleet Services building. The officers went inside and encountered two people -- one who had been shot multiple times, and the other who police took into custody.

The person initially taken into custody is no longer believed to be involved, according to the Madison Police Department.
