MADISON, Wis. - A gunman who fired shots into a crowd just off the UW-Madison campus early Saturday remains at-large, and police are treating the incident as an attempted homicide.
Madison police say about 100 people were standing outside a bar at 1:15am Saturday when shots rang out, striking three people including an 18 year old man, a 23 year old man and a 26 year old woman.
A fourth person may also have been shot and fled the scene, but that has not been confirmed.
It happened outside Johnny O's in the 600 block of University Avenue on graduation weekend.
Counselors were on hand Saturday afternoon at the Red Gym to talk to students.
In a news release, UW-Madison Dean of Students Lori Berquam said she was horrified by the crime, to which many students were witnesses or in the immediate area and affected by the aftermath.
