Madison police went to a South Side neighborhood Wednesday after getting reports of shots fired, but the shots turned out to be paintballs.

The incident was reported at about 10:45 a.m. on Waunona Woods Court, police said.

“When officers arrived they discovered projectiles had been fired but they weren’t bullets,” said police spokesman Joel DeSpain. “They were blue-colored paintballs.”

The paintballs hit several cars but no one was injured.

“Witnesses reported seeing a passenger in a car doing the shooting,” DeSpain said.
