Police were told multiple vehicles were seen fleeing the area after the shots were fired, and officers located numerous shell casings in the area, though no damage was reported, Engler said.

As officers were investigating in the park and surrounding neighborhood, a 20-year-old man was dropped off at a local hospital with a non-life threatening gunshot wound related to the incident at Meadowood Park, Engler said.

The investigation is continuing, and anyone with information is asked to contact Madison police at 608-255-2345, or Madison Area Crime Stoppers at 608-266-6014 or P3Tips.com.
