A 20-year-old Fitchburg man has been charged in a shooting this month near the border of Fitchburg and Madison that police believe might be related to a shooting earlier in the night in which a bullet entered a home and narrowly missed hitting a man.
Police have also released a surveillance camera image of a woman they want to question in the incidents.
Fitchburg officers were sent to the 3300 block of Leopold Way just before 10 p.m. on April 11 after gunfire was reported in the area. Shell casings were found and police spoke with a witness who saw a male shooting at two people who were running away, Sgt. Nick Clemens said in a report. No injuries were reported.
About 10 minutes earlier, Madison police were sent to the 2900 block of Traceway Drive for a home that was hit by gunfire, Sgt. Ryan Gibson said in a report. A man and a women were in a room that was struck, and the man just missed being hit, Gibson said.
It does not appear that the residence was the target of the shooting, he said.
Police on Tuesday arrested Trevion J. Williams in the Fitchburg shooting. A search of his apartment turned up a handgun and additional evidence linking him to the crime, Fitchburg Lt. Edward Hartwick said in a report.
Williams made an initial appearance Thursday in Dane County Circuit Court on a charge of second-degree recklessly endangering safety and was released on a signature bond.
Investigators still are working to determine the events that led up to the shots being fired, and have released a surveillance camera image of a woman they would like to speak with, Hartwick said. She is not considered a suspect.
Anyone with information about the shootings or the identity of the woman is asked to contact Fitchburg police or Madison Area Crime Stoppers at 608-266-6014 or P3Tips.com.
