MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Police have shot and seriously wounded a suspect in the stabbings of three people in a Madison apartment.

Police spokesman Joel DeSpain says the suspect has been taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries.

He says two of the people who were stabbed have died and the third is in stable condition at a hospital.

DeSpain says there appeared to be some sort of dispute between neighbors but police don't have a clear motive for the stabbings.

The stabbings took place Friday afternoon in an apartment along Madison's main thoroughfare. Police blocked off the area, snarling traffic in the state capital.

At least 2 people have been taken to the hospital with what appear to be stab wounds, following an incident at a 2nd floor apartment on East Washington avenue early this afternoon. Madison Police Information Officer Joel DeSpain says there is no threat to the community, as they are not looking for any suspect. As for reports of a possible shooting, DeSpain says that cannot be confirmed as of yet. All lanes of East Washington Avenue have re-opened.  1310 WIBA will bring you more details once they become available.
