One dead, one injured after bar shooting in Madison

TOWN OF MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Police say a fatal shooting at a Madison-area bar stemmed from an argument between two groups of people that escalated into a physical confrontation between one man in each group.

An update Sunday from the Town of Madison Police Department says investigators are still trying to determine why it happened. Police Chief Scott Gregory asked potential witnesses to come forward so investigators don't have to track them down.

Gregory says a 41-year-old Dane County man was killed in the clash at Pitcher's Pub early Saturday, while a 23-year-old Dane County man was injured. He ran away after the first shot was fired. Four more shots were heard as he was running. He was wounded in the head and was taken to a hospital for treatment.

Names have not been released.

TOWN OF MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Police say one man is dead and another wounded after a shooting at a bar in central Wisconsin.

Town of Madison police officers were in the parking lot of Pitcher's Pub early Saturday when they heard gunfire and saw two men running through the lot.

Police Chief Scott Gregory says one man was shot in the head and was treated for his injuries. The man with him was a relative and was not hurt.

Gregory says another man was found on the side of the building with a gunshot wound and died from his injuries.

Police say the shooting appears to be a "targeted act" and not random.

The Wisconsin State Journal reports authorities have not released the name of the man who was killed.
