MADISON (WKOW) — Multiple drivers ducked for cover after gunshots were fired from a car late Thursday at the intersection of Whitney Way and Schroeder Rd.

Police are looking for anyone who might know of a shooting that happened late Thursday night.

Police say a 23-year-old woman says she was shot at while at the intersection about 11:30 p.m.

She was not hurt.

Also at the intersection at the time were two other drivers.

One was a Brewers’ fan coming home from Miller Park, according to police.

He was now almost home and waiting at a red light and the intersection. He could see two men in an SUV behind him start to move quickly.

Suddenly he heard six to eight loud gunshots. Fearing for his life, he ducked down and floored his car through the intersection. Once out of harm’s way, he called 911, according to police.

Another Madison man, 31, was also at the intersection. He was on his way home from work when he saw an arm extend from the passenger side of the SUV and begin firing. He also ducked as the SUV drove off. Frightened, he waited where he was stopped for several moments to allow danger move on.

There are two possible suspect vehicles.  One was a gray or black newer SUV. The other was a red SUV with an “8” in the plate.

Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers at (608) 266-6014.
