Shots fired at UW Madison, police give "all clear" after two suspects detained

by

MADISON, Wis. (WSAU) - An investigation is continuing into a shooting incident in downtown Madison Wednesday evening. 

The gunshots were fired at about 6:30 p.m. near 130 Langdon Street, not far from North Carroll Street west of the Capitol. Authorities didn’t say how many shots were fired. There are no reports of injuries or deaths. 

Students at the University of Wisconsin-Madison were issued a "shelter in place" order.  UW-Madison told students and faculty to stay safe and shelter in place by using their official Twitter account.  Madison police say they detained two people after a robbery erupted in gunfire yesterday. They say the robbery wasn't random, and that there's no danger to those on or around campus.  No one was hurt during Wednesday's incident. 

A suspect was seen a short time later going west on the Lakeshore Path. UW Madison Police describe the suspect as a black male wearing black clothing, including a black jacket, black shirt, black and white baseball cap, and a dark backpack.

Dane County’s 9-1-1 center told Madison media the incident was an attempted armed robbery.

Police evacuated the Madison Area Technical College building and cordoned off a search area as a precaution.
