Shots fired outside State Street bar

A man reportedly fired a gun into the air multiple times outside of a State Street bar early Thursday morning.

James Slattery, of Fitchburg, was taken into custody on tentative charges of endangering safety by use of a dangerous weapon and carrying a handgun where alcohol may be served, Madison Police Department Lt. Timothy Radke said in an incident report.

The shots were allegedly fired around 2 a.m. on the 100 block of State Street.

“There was no altercation prior to this incident, nor does it appear that the gun was pointed at anyone during this incident,” Radke said.  

Shell casings were found nearby.
