MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Madison police were called about shots fired at a park during an event commemorating the 20th anniversary of a fatal shooting.
Madison Police Chief Mike Koval wrote on his blog that officers were called to Elver Park on the west side of Madison late Saturday.

The chief notes that dozens of children were in the area.
