At least 10 people injured during a shooting at The Lux apartment building in Madison

No arrests have been made.



Multiple people were injured during a shooting at a party early Sunday morning. The incident occurred around 12:45 a.m. at the Lux, a high-rise apartment building located on Johnson Street.

Officers were initially dispatched for a large party taking place on the rooftop of the building. They were pulling up to the building when dispatchers alerted them shots had been fired.

Dozens of people were screaming and running out of the building as officers approached. Officers ran up 12 flights of stairs in order to reach and help people.

At least ten people were hurt. Not all of their injuries are gunshot wounds. The victims are between 14 and 23-years-old. We are still having people contact dispatch and showing up at area hospitals for medical care. None of the injuries are considered life-threatening.

No arrests have been made.

Johnson Street and others in the area were shut down for several hours but have since reopened.

The Violent Crime Unit is leading this investigation. Detectives are currently talking with victims and witnesses and reviewing digital evidence.

EMS with the City of Madison Fire Department provided outstanding emergency care to the victims. We thank them for their swift response and all they’ve done to care for our community during this incident.

Chief Barnes spoke with media and city officials at the scene. He will hold a press conference at 9 a.m. on Sunday. Media is asked to gather in the Central District Community Room.
