Madison police investigate murder

Madison police are looking for more information about a murder on the far east side.

It happened Wednesday night in a duplex in the 700 block of N. Thompson drive, according to police spokesman Joel DeSpain. “Just before 8:00, we now believe that two men entered a home and this was a targeted act of violence. We have a woman, 25 years old, who was shot and killed. Her 34-year-old husband suffered numerous gunshot wounds and he was transported to a hospital.”

The man is expected to survive but DeSpain says the husband has not been cooperating with police at all.

DeSpain says the couple’s three young children were there and they escaped injury. The kids, who are currently in a safe place, are the source of sketchy information about the two intruders.
