MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) -- Three people were arrested Friday following an early morning raid at a home on Madison's north side, according to the Madison Police Dept.

Christen N. Justice, Dashawn H. Winslow, and Markelle S. Young were all booked into the Dane Co. jail on multiple counts each (listed below). Ten people in all were detained during the raid, MPD's incident report noted.

The report explains members of MPD's SWAT team broke down the door of the home, at 2832 Coolidge St., shortly before 5:30 a.m. As they entered, they were charged by two dogs, one of which was shot and killed.

One person in the home tried leaping from a second floor window before being detained and several others hid in various places around the house, the report stated. A gun, drug, and evidence of drug dealing were reportedly recovered from the scene.

According to police, the house at 2832 Coolidge had been a nuisance for a long time and they havereceived multiple calls through the years of illegal activity there.

The report specifically describes an incident Wednesday night when a bullet went into a another home on that block as the impetus of Friday morning's raid.

The home and the person who lived there were not associated with the home they believe was the intended target, police said at the time.

According to police, someone who lived at the home that was raided Friday was seen with a gun around the same time. They also said they believe that Wednesday's incident call was linked to a shooting on Bunting Lane soon afterwards.

According to MPD, Winslow, 21, was booked for felon in possession of a firearm, and possession with intent to deliver THC (marijuana); while Young, 21, was booked for theft, criminal damage to property, domestic disorderly conduct and a probation violation; and Justice with carrying a concealed weapon, possession of THC, bail jumping, probation violation, and failure to report to jail.

UPDATE: An earlier version of this story cited police as saying more than a dozen arrests in the raid. In an update, the Madison Police Dept. three people were arrested and a total of ten detained.
