Authorities have identified the man shot to death Saturday night on the Near West Side as Gunnar T. G. Holum, 18, of Dodgeville.

Officers responded to the 1000 block of Spruce Street on a report of shots fired at 1:18 p.m. Saturday and found a man on the ground who had been shot. He was taken to a hospital, where he died.

The Dane County Medical Examiner’s Office said in a statement Monday preliminary results of an autopsy confirmed that Holum’s death was the result of firearm related trauma.

Marcus T. Hamilton, 20, was arrested on a tentative charge of first-degree intentional homicide later Saturday, the Madison Police Department reported.

The shooting was Madison’s third homicide of the year, according to police.

Investigators are asking anyone with information related to the shooting to contact the Violent Crime Unit at 608-243-0535, or Madison Area Crime Stoppers to provide information anonymously at 608-266-6014.
