MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - A 30-year-old man is dead, and two are hospitalized after a triple shooting on Madison’s west side Saturday afternoon.

Acting Madison Police Chief Vic Wahl said the injured victims are a 17-year-old male and an 18-year-old male. Both sustained serious injuries, but are expected to survive.

The call came in around for a shots fired on the 7000 block of Flower Lane around 1:40 p.m. Police say officers arrived to a “chaotic scene,” with victims located inside an apartment, outside the complex and in the nearby neighborhood.

Chief Wahl said there were multiple firearms involved with multiple shots fired. He addressed an uptick in gun violence this year, that he hopes does not continue.

“Certainly my hope is that this is not the new normal and that this is just an outlier of the year and a period that we are going through, because I certainly think this is a level of gun violence that we should all find unacceptable," he said.

Police say the suspect and victims are believed to be known to each other. No arrests have been made.

If you have any information regarding this incident, contact Crime Stoppers at 608-266-6014.
