Fitchburg police are asking people to check surveillance camera video linked to “suspicious activity” early Tuesday morning in the city.
Shortly after 1:30 a.m., an officer from Fitchburg saw a black sedan driving south at high speed on Richardson Street and McKee Road. The officer began to check the area where he saw the sedan heading and when the officer reached the 5700 block of Wilshire Drive he saw three or four young men walking near two different houses as well as the black sedan. . The men fled as soon as they saw the officer, Sgt. Dan Varriale said in a report.
A police dog was used in a search and a 15-year-old boy was found hiding outside an exit window in a nearby house and taken into custody, although the others had fled, Varriale said.
Police have asked residents of Seminole Ridge and surrounding neighborhoods to check any cameras they may have for signs of suspicious activity on Tuesday morning, Varriale said.
Anyone with information on the shootings is urged to contact Fitchburg Police at 608-270-4300, or Madison Area Crime Stoppers at 608-266-6014 or P3Tips.com.
