MADISON, Wisc (WSAU) Three people are in custody after U-W Madison Police were told that shots were fired on the far west end of the campus. The Dane County 9-1-1 center received a call just before 9:30 last night, saying that up to five shots were fired in the Eagle Heights-University Houses area and a vehicle was leaving the scene. It’s where a number of faculty, staff, and graduate students live.
No injuries were reported.
Police said two persons-of-interest were taken into custody soon after the call. A third person was brought in almost two hours later. None of them were said to be affiliated with the U-W.
The university sent out a number of alerts about the situation to around 20,000 campus subscribers. An all-clear was issued around midnight.
