Police have identified the location of a fatal shooting in Sun Prairie Tuesday as the investigation into the city's first homicide of the year continues.
Sun Prairie police Lt. Ryan Cox said Wednesday investigators found that the 200 block of Broadway Drive was the scene of the shooting that left one man dead.
A 29-year-old man was dropped off in front of the UW Health Union Corners Clinic, 2402 Winnebago St., about 12:25 p.m. Tuesday with a life-threatening gunshot wound. He was then taken to a local hospital where he died.
Cox said no other details of the ongoing investigation would be released Wednesday.
The Madison Police Department is assisting in the investigation.
Anyone with information related to the homicide is asked to contact Sun Prairie police’s non-emergency line at 608-837-7336 or 608-837-6300 to submit information anonymously. The public can also call Madison Area Crime Stoppers at 608-266-6014 or submit information online at p3tips.com.
A Cambridge man was charged with two counts of homicide by drunken driving in September after he fled from Sun Prairie police during an attempted traffic stop in the city on June 26 and crashed his car near a Kwik Trip, 1252 W. Main St., killing two passengers and injuring a third.
Cox said the fatal crash happened in Sun Prairie but was investigated by the state Department of Justice's Division of Criminal Investigation.
The last homicide in the city that Sun Prairie police investigated, Cox said from memory, was in 2017 when a man was shot to death in a parking lot on the 400 block of South Bird Street. Cox said there were no homicide charges filed in that case as the shooting was ultimately deemed as a self-defense incident.
The 2017 fatal shooting was the first homicide in Sun Prairie since 2015.
