A male in his 20s was shot in the 2700 block of McDivitt Road Wednesday morning.

According to a MPD incident report, detectives believe the shooter specifically targeted the victim and it was not a random act of violence.

A suspect has not yet been identified.

The victim was found in the street, suffering from a life-threatening head wound and is being treated at a hospital.

Investigators have recovered more than 25 shell castings and the preliminary investigation suggests more than one gun was fired. At least two bullets hit a nearby apartment building, but there were no reported injuries.

Leopold Elementary School was placed on a lockdown as a precautionary measure.

MPD announced that there is no longer any imminent danger to those working or living in the area.

The victim died at a local hospital October 10,  upgrading the incident to a homicide.

MPD requested citizen help to find the suspect Brandon Crockett, a 27-year-old man from Madison.
