MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Three people were shot outside bars near the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus, but their injuries are not life threatening.

According to Madison police, a gunman fired into a crowd of approximately 100 people and then ran away at about 1:15 a.m. Saturday.

The victims were a 26-year-old woman, an 18-year-old man and a 23-year-old man, all from Madison. None were UW-Madison students. All were expected to be treated and released from a hospital.

Police say they do not yet know a motive for the shooting.
