A fight at a downtown Madison nightclub led a patron to fire one gunshot outside the venue early Monday morning.
According to a police report, two black men in their 20s were fighting inside the Frequency nightclub, 121 W. Main St., around 1 a.m. Monday when one pulled out a gun.
The men then moved outside, according to police. The struggle continued outside the club and one shot was reportedly heard.
This is the first shooting in downtown Madison since last May’s shooting near Segredo and Johnny O’s Sports Lounge, according to Ald. Mike Verveer, District 4.
“Shootings never happen in downtown Madison,” Verveer said. “It’s very troubling.”
Verveer said police recovered the fired bullet from a nearby tree and added it was by “sheer dumb luck that no one was seriously injured.”
According to the report, both men left before police arrived and no arrests have been made.
