MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - The Madison Police Department is investigating a weapons violation that occurred early Saturday morning in Madison’s East Side.

Police said the weapons violation occurred in the 4600 block of Milwaukee Street. Three people were treated at local hospitals for non-life threatening injuries, according to MPD. The incident is allegedly a result of a disturbance that began at a gathering inside a house.

Police would not say what kind of weapon was involved, but two people told NBC15 News that they heard gunshots.

In video that NBC15 obtained from a nearby home’s doorbell camera, what sounds like nearly 15 gunshots can be heard going off around 3:30 a.m.

“I was about to fall asleep and suddenly awoken by a rapid fire of gunshots, and I looked out the window. People were yelling. I saw some people running in the street,” neighbor Kyle Hynek said.

The incident is under investigation by the Violent Crime Unit. Officials confirmed that a search warrant was issued.

“I definitely don’t want this to happen. I value my life and the house and property I own. I don’t want this to be a normal occurrence at all,” Hynek said.

The Madison Police Department PIO was unavailable to give details regarding the incident.
