UPDATE (WKOW) -- Authorities have decided against charging Carmen Sharp with party to the crime of first-degree homicide, instead filing charges of harboring or aiding a felon Thursday.

According to the complaint, security footage from the scene shows a woman matching Sharp's description hiding the murder weapon behind a wheelbarrow on the far side of the parking lot. She initially told investigators she hadn't seen a firearm.

The recovered gun was reported stolen from Smitty's Guns in Deerfield in July 2020.


UPDATE (WKOW) -- Authorities have identified the person killed in Madison's first homicide of the year.

Isiah T. Davis, 23, died of "homicidal firearm related trauma," according to a press release from the Dane County Medical Examiner's Office.

Davis was shot on the 300 block of South Park Street Saturday, April 3. He later died, making the shooting Madison's first homicide of 2021.

The death remains under investigation by the city of Madison Police Department and the Dane County Medical Examiner’s Office.
