UPDATE (WKOW) — Police are investigating the fifth homicide of the year after a man was shot in a parking garage early Sunday morning.
Chief Mike Koval says they don’t believe it to be a random shooting.
“We find it highly unlikely that they first saw one another for the time of first impression at the point that they were at the ramp,” Koval said. “We have indication that there was something that occurred as a predicate prior to this.”
Officers found the man who had been shot in the torso. He died at a hospital.
Dane County Medical Examiner’s Office has identified the man as Steven Villegas, 21, of Madison.
Police say they are going through surveillance video from the area but they’re also asking for the public’s help to identify a suspect. If you have a photo or video of the area of Whiskey Jacks and the Frances Street ramp from 12-2 a.m. you should call Madison Area Crime Stoppers at (608) 266-6014.
