MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - Police are investigating another shots fired incident in Madison.

According to the Madison Police Department, officers responded to Park Heights Court near Elver Park just after 11:30 Wednesday night for a report of five to six gunshots. Police did find three shell casings believed to be from a handgun.

Witnesses at scene shared that they saw a dark-colored car speed away after the shots, along with a person running from the area toward Elver Park.

The incident on Madison’s west side is only a few miles away from Garner Park, where a day before at least three people were shot when gunfire erupted on a crowd of around 300 people at a celebration of life for a recent Madison homicide victim.

On Wednesday, Acting Police Chief Vic Wahl shared that “the gun violence that we’re seeing here in Madison is really at an unprecedented level.”
