UPDATE: (WKOW) -- Madison police are looking for a 30-year-old suspect in connection with a shooting early Thursday afternoon near Elver Park.

The shooting happened around 12:21 p.m. in the 1100 block of Morraine View Dr, according to Madison Police Information Officer Joel DeSpain.

Police say the injured man is 19 and was shot in the leg during a dispute. This all happened while kids were playing nearby.

"Even though this was very targeted, once again we have in broad daylight somebody firing a gun where there are a lot of children and families around. And so it's a dangerous situation for them. Anyone could have gotten hit by a stray bullet," DeSpain told 27 News.

The suspect is an African-American male, 30, with dreadlock hair wearing a red shirt.

The shooter and victim know each other, according to DeSpain.
