Police respond to second shots-fired call over weekend

Madison police responded to a report of shots fired Saturday night, which was the second incident of reported gunfire over the weekend.

Officers were sent to the 500 block of Tompkins Drive around 10:35 p.m. where five shots were reportedly fired into a residence that was occupied, according to a release.

Police found five bullet holes and two shell casings. No one was injured in the incident, and no one has been arrested, officials said.

The first report of shots fired happened early Saturday morning when at least 10 bullet casings were found in an east Madison parking lot after people reported hearing gunshots in the area, police said.

Madison police said officers responded to numerous calls reporting shots fired at 3520 East Washington Ave. in the Prime Quarter restaurant parking lot just before 1 a.m. Saturday.

Police said callers reported a number of cars fleeing the lot immediately after hearing gunshots. When officers arrived, no one was in the parking lot.

On Saturday morning, police did not have identifying information about the parties involved.

Officers found between 10-15 bullet casings in the parking lot, according to the report. Police said on Saturday morning there had not been injuries reported as a result of the incident.

The bullet casings were found Saturday morning less than a day after Madison police crime analysts said there had been 33 cases of shots fired reports in the city since April 1 and included a map plotting the dozens of reports across the city, with two-thirds of the reports taking place south and west of downtown.
