One Dead In Madison Shooting Near DSU

One Dead In Madison Shooting Near DSU
MADISON, SD - People in Madison are being asked to keep their doors locked and a university campus is on lockdown as officials search for the gunman in a deadly shooting.

It happened Tuesday around 8:00 p.m. near the intersection of 5th Street and Egan Avenue. That's only a block from the Dakota State University Campus.

Police and the Division of Criminal Investigation are searching for the suspect but they have not released a description of the person who may be responsible.

The victim's name has not been released.

Moments after DSU administrators confirmed the shooting, they immediately notified students. One of the school's deans says it's all about keeping people safe.

"We've received notification that there was a shooting somewhere west of campus actually in the City of Madison," Dean of Students Jesse Kane said.

Kane says once they found out, the Board of Regents sent them an e-mail that they forwarded on to all students.

"Advising them that there had been a report of a shooting in Madison and asking them to stay indoors. I recommended that they stay indoors and if they see any suspicious activity that they would notify the police," Kane said.

Kane says with the shooting just blocks from campus and the shooter still at large, one of the school's biggest concerns was the dorms. They're locked 24 hours a day to begin with. But they wanted to make sure the gunman didn't make it inside.

"We wanted to make sure our resident students, the ones who are typically here this time of night, that they remain indoors. And if they see any suspicious activity that they would notify the resident assistant or the resident directors who have been notified that this is happening as well," Kane said.

Kane also plans to hold discussions with students today to see if there are any concerns on how Tuesday's situation was handled.
