MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Three people were shot at a Madison park where people had gathered to memorialize a recent homicide victim.

Gunfire erupted about 9 p.m. Tuesday at Garner Park on the city’s southwest side. Police say three people were treated at hospitals and one person was detained.

Officials say a gun and shell casings were found at the scene. People had gone to the park to celebrate the life of 24-year-old Maurice Bowman Jr. He was shot and killed July 25 in Madison.

He was a passenger in a car that was hit with gunfire from another vehicle on the southwest side.

Eight people have been homicide victims in Madison this year, double the number in all of 2019.
