A runner was shot by a pellet gun fired from a car on the West Side on Wednesday afternoon, Madison police reported.

The runner told police he was on a Whitney Way sidewalk, near Tokay Boulevard, about 12:20 p.m. Wednesday when a small, boxy, dull gray sedan passed by him, police spokesman Joel DeSpain said in a statement.

The runner said he heard two to three rounds being fired from the car and one struck his arm, causing a welt, DeSpain said.
