September 30, 2018

Madison police are investigating after a man and a woman were found dead from apparent gunshot wounds in an East Side home Saturday afternoon.

Officers responded to the 3100 block of Webb Avenue after a possible death was reported, said police Lt. Jamar Gary. Police met with several family members outside a townhouse and forced entry around 12:30 p.m., Gary said.

A 34-year-old woman and 39-year-old man, who were “known to one another in a domestic context,” were found dead inside the home, he said.

“There is ample reason to believe that this was an isolated event, and there is no ongoing threat to the public,” Gary said.

A firearm was found at the scene, Gary said. The names of the woman and man will be released by the Dane County Medical Examiner’s Office.
