Law enforcement officers have searched a house in Madison in the investigation into a shooting at a Wisconsin software company.

Dane County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Elise Schaffer says officers searched the residence late Wednesday on the city’s southwest side following the shooting earlier that day at WTS Paradigm in nearby Middleton.

The shooter, a company employee, shot and wounded four people before he was fatally shot by officers.

Schaffer declined to say if the house belonged to the gunman, whose name has not been released. Three people suffered serious injuries, while a fourth sustained a graze wound.

Middleton police say the gunman fired at officers before he was shot.


11:30 p.m.

Authorities say they still don’t know why a Wisconsin software company employee went to his office with a pistol and extra ammunition and opened fire on his colleagues, seriously injuring several before he was fatally shot by police.

The attack happened Wednesday morning at WTS Paradigm in Middleton. Investigators haven’t released the suspect’s name but say he lived in nearby Madison.

Middleton Police Chief Chuck Foulke says three victims suffered serious injuries, while a fourth suffered a graze wound.

Foulke says officers were on the scene and shot the man within eight minutes of getting an emergency call. Foulke says the man was using a semi-automatic pistol and had extra magazines, and that he believes officers prevented more bloodshed.

He says the man fired at officers before he was shot.
