Shots fired on UW campus

Three people are in custody after UW Madison Police were told that shots were fired on the far west end of the campus. The Dane County 911 center received a call just before 9:30 Tuesday night, saying that up to five shots were fired in the Eagle Heights-University Houses area and a vehicle was leaving the scene. It’s where a number of faculty, staff, and graduate students live. No injuries were reported. Police said two persons-of-interest were taken into custody soon after the call. A third person was brought in almost two hours later. None of them were said to be affiliated with the UW. The university sent out a number of alerts about the situation to around 20-thousand campus subscribers. An all-clear was issued around midnight.
