State Capitol, Madison

MADISON (WITI) — It appears to be a misunderstanding. Madison police say there is no threat near Mifflin St. This, after there were reports a man wearing camouflage with a shotgun walking around the neighborhood. Officers apparently located the person.

FOX6 News talked with Madison police since the conclusion of this incident, they say the man in question was someone who had been hunting — and was on his way back to his apartment. Apparently some football fans saw him with his gun and called police.

Several tweets that were sent out by University of Wisconsin-Madison police illustrated what was at hand. See below.
