A female was in critical condition after being shot Sunday evening on the East Side, Madison police said.
Officers responded to multiple reports of someone having been shot at the intersection of Eagan Road and Lien Road at about 7 p.m., Lt. Eugene Woehrle said in a statement.
Arriving officers found a female who had been shot while in her vehicle, Woehrle said. The shots came from another vehicle.
Police did not release the victim’s age. She was taken to a local hospital and was in “critical condition” Sunday evening, Woehrle said.
Woehrle said the investigation was “active and ongoing.”
The department's Violent Crime Unit determined that the woman was acquainted with the suspects, though no suspect information was released "as the investigation remains ongoing," officer Tyler Grigg said in a statement around mid-day Monday.
