Madison police officers entered a condo on the Far East Side to find a man’s body in an apparent suicide following a domestic struggle Monday afternoon. 

Officers responded to the condo on Holborn Circle at around 2:35 p.m. Monday after an 18-year-old woman fled the residence, telling police there was a 35-year-old man inside who had just pointed a gun at her and threatened to kill her during the struggle, Madison police spokesperson Joel DeSpain said. 

A gunshot was reportedly fired during the struggle, but the woman was not injured.

Officers found probable cause to arrest the man, who DeSpain said was a “felon with a lengthy criminal history,” on several charges based on the woman’s statement. While officers were trying to negotiate with the man from outside, two more gunshots were heard from inside the condo.
