The Madison Police Department responded to the 300-block of Northeast 2nd Street in Madison on Sunday evening for an individual who was threatening a person with a handgun.  The incident began just after 8:00 Sunday night.  It was believed that prior to law enforcement’s arrival, the person had re-entered the residence with the handgun.   

Officers from the Madison Police Department and Lake County Sheriff’s Office responded and set up a perimeter and secured the neighborhood.   The Special Response Team and negotiators also responded to the scene.     

Madison Police Chief Justin Meyer said that after negotiators were able to establish contact with the suspect, it was learned that he had left the residence and was enroute to a local hospital to receive care.    

Meyer said an attempt-to-locate was put out to surrounding counties.  The suspect was later located in Brookings and taken into custody.  Meyer said the investigation is ongoing at this time and more information will be provided when it is available.
