MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - The Sun Prairie Police Dept. is investigating after a man suffering from a gunshot wound died after being brought to a Madison UW Health Clinic.

A Madison Police Dept. police spokesperson confirmed to NBC15 that a 29-year-old man arrived at the clinic, in the 2400 block of Winnebago St., early Tuesday afternoon, adding that emergency crews had started life-saving procedures. The Madison Police Dept. noted in an incident report that the man was then taken to a local hospital, where he died of his injuries.

The name of the victim has not been released.

According to police, a car dropped off the person and remained at the clinic.

Because the shooting happened in Sun Prairie, its police department is taking the lead on the homicide investigation with Madison officers providing assistance. As of Wednesday afternoon, Sun Prairie investigators are working to determine where the shooting occurred.

“We don’t get shootings every day in general, but determining where an incident took place after a transport to somewhere else is not normal,” Lt. Ryan Cox, Sun Prairie police said. “That’s why we’re trying to move as quickly as possible to determine where the scene is and collect evidence and get the investigation done the right way.”

Authorities are investigating the 200 block of Broadway Street in Sun Prairie. Lt. Cox explained they believe the area may have a connection to the shooting, but they can not confirm where it happened.

Neighbors in the area said it’s not a typical Tuesday night.

“Really quiet, older people in the neighborhood. It’s really nice and quiet. Every once in a while we see a cop car in the neighborhood but nothing crazy,” Krynne Lawver, Sun Prairie neighbor said.

Anyone with information on this incident should call the Sun Prairie Police Department Non-Emergency Line at 608-837-7336, or reach out anonymously at (608) 837-6300. MPD also asked that anyone with information call Madison Area Crime Stoppers at 266-6014, or submit a tip on its website.
