SUN PRAIRIE, Wis. (WMTV) - The Sun Prairie Police Department arrested the 33-year-old man they were searching for earlier in the day Thursday after accusing him of reckless homicide.

Sun Prairie Police noted late Thursday night that they have located and interviewed witnesses for the past nine days, collected evidence and surveillance.

According to a news release, police received a tip that said a person of interest was at an address on Pine Street in Sun Prairie. Officers noted due to the nature of the crime and the use of a gun, they asked for assistance from the Dane County Tactical Response Team.

Sun Prairie police officers were able to take Anthony Young into custody, without incident on the charges of alleged first degree reckless homicide, felony bail jumping, possession of Cocaine, MDMA, heroin and drug paraphernalia.

On Thursday, investigators released several images of Young and asked anyone with information on his whereabouts to contact police.

Investigators wanted to speak with Young in relation to the death of Shanton Robinson, 29, of Marshall, who was pronounced dead on February 23, after he was dropped off at a Madison UW Health Clinic suffering from a gunshot wound.

The Dane County Medical Examiner’s Office ruled Robinson died from “homicidal firearm related trauma.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Sun Prairie Police Department’s non-emergency line at 608-837-7336 or to leave a tip anonymously at 608-837-6300.
