Medical Examiner releases name of man killed in Far West Side triple shooting

The Dane County Medical Examiner’s Office has identified the 30-year-old Madison man killed in a triple shooting Saturday on the Far West Side as Jason I. Eggleston.

Eggleston died at the scene of the shootings that also seriously injured two teens, ages 17 and 18.

A forensic autopsy was completed Tuesday, and preliminary results confirm Eggleston died from homicidal firearm-related trauma, the Medical Examiner’s Office said.

Officers were called to the Wexford Ridge apartment complex on Flower Lane just before 1:40 p.m. Saturday. Eggleston was found on the pavement of Flower Lane. One of the injured teens was found in an apartment, and the other was found about a half-block away from the complex. Both suffered life-threatening injuries but were expected to survive, police said.

Police have not announced any suspects or arrests.

The fatal shooting was the city’s 11th homicide of the year — tying a record of 11 homicides set in 2017 — and the first since the Aug. 11 shooting of 11-year-old Anisa Scott, who died two days later when she was taken off life support.
