The incident follows roughly a week of increased gun violence in the Madison area, including an explosion of gunfire on the Far East Side Sunday night and two shootings on the North and East Sides on Nov. 20.
Madison police said a bullet from the shooting outside of the Terrace East apartment complex at Cottage Grove Road and Vernon Avenue narrowly missed a sleeping child when it entered the apartment. Police found about 45 shell casings at the scene, which acting Police Chief Vic Wahl said is unusually high. Some bullets entered other homes in the area, and two vehicles were also hit.
A woman was hit by a stray bullet when it entered her home during the shooting on the 200 block of Bunting Lane on Nov. 20. Police said the woman called from Oriole Lane nearby and the injury was not life-threatening.
No injuries or damage were reported at the other Nov. 20 shooting, which happened on the 2800 block of Coolidge Street. Police said there were multiple reports of shots fired and a vehicle fleeing the scene.
