Police use less-lethal rounds while arresting shooting suspect


MADISON, Wis. — Madison police arrested a man Sunday after he allegedly tried shooting another person during an early-morning altercation.

Police said they used less-lethal munitions while trying to arrest him.

Officers with the Madison Police Department first responded to the 5800 block of Balsam Road around 3:50 a.m. after getting multiple reports of shots fired. The suspect, 43-year-old Tokiee D. Sole, was gone by the time police got to the area.

According to an incident report, Sole was involved in an altercation with an adult who he was in a relationship with. Authorities said Sole allegedly fired several rounds which hit a vehicle and nearby building. MPD said they believe Sole fired the gun in an attempt to shoot the other person.

Local law enforcement in the area spotted and stopped Sole’s vehicle a while later. During the stop, officers tried subduing Sole with less-lethal rounds because he was “non-compliant.”

Sole was eventually taken into custody without injury. Authorities said they found a loaded firearm during a subsequent search.

He was booked into the Dane County Jail on tentative charges of attempted first-degree intentional homicide, criminal damage to property and a parole violation.

Madison police said their investigation is ongoing. The Dane County Sheriff’s Department, Town of Madison Police and UW-Madison police helped respond.
