Tuesday morning, Fitchburg Police Department personnel took a 26-year-old man into custody in connection to an attempted homicide from early September.

Brown is under the supervision of the Wisconsin Department of Corrections for an original charge of armed robbery. 

Brown ran from officers when he was first spotted, and a police K9 apprehended him. Officers recovered a loaded firearm with an extended magazine that he discarded while running as well as narcotics. A vehicle stolen in an armed carjacking in Illinois, was also recovered in the area of the arrest. Officers located evidence linking Brown to recent possession of the vehicle. The original carjacking remains under investigation in Illinois.  

The attempted homicide incident remains under investigation and no additional arrests have been made, nor have any charges been referred. Charges for Brown, related to Tuesday's arrest, will be forwarded to the Dane County District Attorney’s Office for review.

ORIGINAL RELEASE

Incident Type: Attempted Homicide  

Original Incident Date: 9/8/21 

Release Date: 9/9/21 

Incident number: 21-16522 

Prepared By: Lt. Edward Hartwick 

Details: 

Around 8:50 p.m. Wednesday, September 8, Fitchburg officers responded to the 1900 block of Pike Drive for a call of multiple shots fired. A short time later, a car arrived at the Fitchburg Police Department with a passenger who had been shot. Officers rendered care to the 41-year-old male before he was transported to a local hospital by Fitch-Rona EMS with non-life-threatening injuries.

Investigating officers located evidence of the shooting on the 1900 block of Pike Drive. The preliminary investigation revealed the victim was sitting in the passenger seat of a parked car when the suspect walked up and fired multiple rounds, striking the victim.  The shooter is believed to have fled the area in a dark Dodge sedan.  

The attempted homicide investigation remains open, with no arrests and no suspects identified to date.  This appears to be a targeted act and is not believed to be a random incident. No additional information is available for release at this time. The Dane County Sheriff’s Office and the Town of Madison Police Department also responded and assisted with this incident.

 Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact the Fitchburg Police Department at (608)270-4300.  Tipsters can remain anonymous by calling Madison Area Crime Stoppers at (608)266-6014 or by visiting P3Tips.com
