MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) – A 6-year-old girl was watching TV in her apartment on Russett Road when a random bullet came through the front window Monday evening.

According to the Madison Police Department, the bullet was among several shots that were fired outside the girl’s home. A witness said they saw the gunman shoot at a moving car.

The 6-year-old girl was among several children inside the apartment when the bullet came through.

“They could have shot my baby…Madison did not used to be like this and it just keeps getting worse,” the mother of the 6-year-old told police.

Police found shell casings in a nearby parking lot. It does not appear that the residence was an intended target.
