MPD arrests five in relation to McDivitt Road shooting

Madison Police Department officers received information Friday regarding several “persons of interest” that led to multiple people being taken into custody.

Officers were told Friday several people were in the area of Hanson Road and Portage Road.

“When officers stopped the vehicle multiple subjects fled into the nearby wooded area. Numerous businesses were asked to shelter in place,” Sergeant Jason Sweeney wrote in a press release. “After an extensive search, three subjects were taken into custody.”

Shortly after those arrests, two more “persons of interest” were taken into custody on South Stoughton Road, near Cottage Grove Road.

“Due to the potential hazard, S. Stoughton Rd was closed down for a short period of time,” Sweeney wrote.

In the update on the shooting, MPD did not release the identities of any of the five individuals taken into custody and did not call any of those individuals suspects. The update also did not give any further information on the male victim who was in critical condition last week with a gunshot wound to the head, but it did call the incident an “attempted homicide.”
