FITCHBURG (WKOW) – The Fitchburg Police Department has arrested a man allegedly linked to a shooting incident on May 11.
Police reported that their investigation identified Adonius E. Paul, 24, as a suspect. Officers took him into custody on May 14.
Investigators said a search warrant for an apartment connected to Paul on the 2700 block of Novation Parkway led to the discovery of a stolen handgun.
Officers say the incident is still being investigated as they believe Paul and at least one occupant of a vehicle fired guns. Several shots were fired during the incident in the parking lot of an apartment complex and in the area of Highway 14.
Authorities reported that Paul had been charged with 2nd degree recklessly endangering security, endangering security by using a dangerous weapon and receiving stolen goods. He made a first appearance earlier this week in Dane County Circuit Court.
Law enforcement said it was the fifth confirmed shooting incident in Fitchburg in 2021.
