A Sub-Zero employee was shot at when tailing a suspicious trio fleeing the company parking lot Thursday night, Fitchburg police said.

A spent shell casing was located at the scene, but the employee was not injured and no property damage was found, Sgt. Pete Johnston said.

Police were called to Sub-Zero, 6061 Basswood Drive, about 8:15 p.m. for a report of a theft from a vehicle and then a report of the shot fired, Johnston said.

Employees told officers that they observed three men going through the parking lot looking into cars. The trio set off a car alarm and then ran back to their vehicle, described as an older, dark Chevy Lumina or Toyota Camry, Johnston said.

An employee followed the vehicle for a short distance in his own vehicle before he was shot at, Johnston said.

Anyone with information on the robbery is asked to call Fitchburg police at 608-270-4300, the anonymous tipster line at 608-270-4321, Madison Area Crime Stoppers at 608-266-6014, or by texting the keyword “Fitchburg” to 847411.
