Police received multiple reports of shots fired on Madison’s east and south sides overnight Tuesday.

Madison police said officers responded Tuesday night to a report from a Piccadilly Drive resident who after she said she heard a loud bang outside her home around 9 p.m. She later discovered the rear windshield of her car had been shot out. Police said it appeared to be a random act of gun violence.

About 20 minutes later, a resident on nearby Jana Lane reported hearing a “gah-boom,” and then seeing a dark-colored van driving from the area, according to the report.

Around 12:25 a.m., other callers reported hearing several shots fired not far from the first two cases. Police said the reports were thought to originate from the 700 to 800 blocks of North Thompson Drive.

Shortly after 1 a.m. in the MPD’s South District, there were multiple reports of shots possibly being fired in the area of Turbot Drive and Fish Hatchery Road.

Aside from the first case in which the car window was shattered, there were no other reports of damage.

Police said there were no injuries reported in any of the cases.
