Lockdown In Place At Madison Schools, Lifted At DSU
MADISON, SD - As law enforcement in Madison search for a suspect in a deadly shooting, Dakota State University says there is no threat to students or staff anymore but administrators of Madison Central School District are still taking precautions.

Police responded to a shooting Tuesday evening near the intersection of 5th Street and Egan Avenue. That's only a block from the Dakota State University Campus, which was put on lockdown overnight.

The Madison Police Chief has confirmed one person is dead, but the victim's name has not been released.

Officials are looking for a white man who is between 50 to 60 years old, 5'8" to 6' tall with a medium build. He may be wearing glasses and a ball cap. People are asked to watch for a maroon, four-door sedan, which authorities believe the suspect may be driving.

Anyone with information is urged to call the Madison Police Department at 605-256-7531.

On its website, DSU says that based on information from the Madison Police Department, there is no longer a threat associated with the shooting. The campus is not currently on lock down so all classes and activities will proceed as scheduled.

As for the public schools in town, Madison Central School District confirms a lockdown remains in place and will be for the rest of the day.  There is no open campus and if a student needs to leave, they will be walked to their car.
