Madison police said two 17-year-olds were arrested in connection to reports of a shot fired Wednesday evening near 124 Langdon St. in downtown Madison.
A 19-year-old told police he was robbed at gunpoint in the 100 block of West Gilman Street around 6:20 p.m., officials said. He said the robber took his backpack, wallet and keys.
Police believe someone who knew the man chased the robber on foot as he headed towards Langdon Street, according to a release. One round was fired in the 100 block of Langdon Street by one of the robbers.
"We've got witnesses that see this suspect, the one that fired the round, run towards Lake Mendota. Later we have a police dog that tracks and we recover the backpack that was stolen, the handgun and some other evidence," said Joel DeSpain, Madison police public information officer.
