MADISON, Wis. – The Dane County Sheriff’s Office is investigating an officer-involved shooting on Madison’s far east side.

The Wisconsin State Journal reported the shooting took place Thursday morning. Witnesses told the newspaper that two SUV-type vehicles pinned a silver vehicle between them in the street and people with guns surrounded the silver vehicle and smashed its window.

Authorities said a 38-year-old man was shot during the incident and suffered non-life-threatening wounds.

The sheriff’s office said the man was wanted on a state Department of Corrections warrant and has an open disorderly conduct case.
