MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) – One man was shot and several others stabbed when a fight broke out late Sunday night at a home on Madison’s west side, according to the city’s police dept.

In a Monday morning update, MPD explained its investigators suspect one of the individuals involved in the fight attacked multiple people with a knife and was shot by one of the people he allegedly stabbed. The 20-year-old man who was shot remains in critical condition, while the three stabbing victims are expected to survive, the report noted.

Officers were called to the home, in the 2100 block of Adderbury Circle, shortly before 10:30 p.m. after multiple people called 911 saying they heard gunfire in the midst of a large fight.

When they arrived, the officers first found the man who was shot, and he was taken to a local hospital with a life-threatening injury. As their investigation continued, the officers learned that other allegedly people involved in the confrontation may be at a nearby home – a home where approaching officers said they could hear screaming while still outside.

When the officers made it inside, they reported finding two young children in the basement and taking them to safety before moving on. After resuming their search, the officers found several people with knife wounds.

No arrests have been made in connection with the incident as of Monday morning, according to police. MPD’s Violent Crime Unit is investigating the case.
