A Madison man was arrested for an exchange of gunfire after a dispute at a State Street apartment Thursday night that caused property damage but no injuries, Madison police said.

Brandon M. Buckner, 28, was arrested on a tentative charge of second-degree reckless endangering safety.

Numerous callers reported the shots about 10:30 p.m. in the 600 block of Langdon Street, Sgt. Stuart Moeser said.

Detectives found there was a dispute inside a second-floor apartment on State Street that has a window that faces nearby Langdon Street. Following the confrontation inside the apartment, a couple of men fled into an alley and there was an exchange of gunfire, with at least two weapons involved, Moeser said.

Casings and other evidence were recovered, and one bullet hit the window of an unoccupied office of an apartment building on Langdon Street, Moeser said. There also was damage to the apartment where the initial confrontation had taken place.
