MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - Madison Police said an initial weapons violation on the east side of Madison has turned into a homicide investigation after a 35-year-old male was found with a fatal stab wound Friday night.

According to officials, the man was initially taken to the hospital and later died from his injuries after initial first-aid efforts were given.

This is an active investigation, and officials said it does not appear to be a random incident.

In a presser Saturday afternoon, MPD Chief Shon Barnes said they are looking for the community’s help in identifying any persons involved in this incident and another homicide that occurred on Northport Drive in Madison Friday night.

“We need you to give us a call if you saw something, a vehicle or person or anything, please let us know because we want to bring a quick resolution to these two incidents,” Chief Barnes said.

Barnes said the two homicide cases do not appear to be related. He also said Friday night’s cases are the fifth and sixth homicides of the year for the city.

Anyone with information should contact Madison Area Crime Stoppers at 608-266-6014 or online at
