MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) -- Madison police are investigating reports of shots fired on Madison's east side early Monday morning.

Police said several officers were dispatched to the 900 block of Vernon Avenue around 12:42 a.m. after several community members, as well as Madison firefighters from Station Five on Cottage Grove Road, heard a volley of suspected gunshots.

Officers did not find any damage, nor were any injuries reported, but police said this was likely a legitimate weapons violation, and not fireworks.
