Police look for suspect in radio station shooting

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A shooting that wounded a disc jockey at a Wisconsin radio station appears to have been a targeted attack against a specific individual, police said Monday.

Sunday’s shooting at WORT-FM in Madison wasn’t a random attack or an act of violence targeting the media, according to police spokesman David Dexheimer.

Authorities are still looking for the masked gunman who entered the non-commercial radio station around 3 a.m. Sunday and opened fire on three people in one of the studios. One of the three volunteers, a DJ, was wounded. He was treated at a hospital and released. The two others were not injured.

Station officials said the three ran into the adjacent control room before hiding in the music library and calling 911.

Doug Holtz, the station’s business director, said they are reviewing security practices.
