An employee at a Wisconsin business where a shooting took place says she ran for her life after hearing "really loud" shots.

More than 40 Police Cars and a number of ambulances are on the scene, as people in the area of Deming Way were asked to stay away from the building, get inside, and lock their doors and windows. She says she ran out of the building and hid behind a auto.

A black legislative candidate says she feels humiliated after Madison police stopped her while she was campaigning door-to-door and questioned her. She says it shouldn't be unusual that a black woman is knocking on doors in 2018. "You just wonder, 'Do you hide or do you run?'" she said.

The Greenway Station shopping center next door to the office building is on lockdown. The Dane County Sheriff's Office confirmed they were assisting Middleton police. There are stores and restaurants affected.
