Release Date: 5/21/21

Prepared By: Lt. Edward Hartwick

Incident Details:

On Friday, May 14, investigators followed up on an investigative lead related to a May 11 shots fired incident that occurred in the 2800 block of Oregon Road. During the course of their follow-up, investigators identified Adonius E. Paul, 24, as a suspect and took him into custody. A search warrant, conducted at an apartment connected to Paul in the 2700 block of Novation Parkway, led to the discovery of a stolen handgun. 

The investigation into the incident continues, as investigators believe Paul was engaged in the exchange of gunfire with at least one occupant of a vehicle.  Multiple gunshots were fired during the incident in an apartment complex parking lot and in the area of Highway 14. This is the fifth confirmed shots fired incident in Fitchburg of 2021.  

Paul made an initial appearance earlier this week in Dane County Circuit Court on charges of 2nd Degree Recklessly Endangering Safety, Endangering Safety By Use of a Dangerous Weapon, and Receiving Stolen Property.
