I was on Univ Ave tonight at 6:30 and saw the police cars whiz by towards Langdon St. Memorial Union is on lockdown.

The latest MPD incident report provides a lot more info:

I think Madison is going through some growing pains in the drug game, which has been a situation that's been developing over the last several summers. Lots of targeted home invasions (and very important backpacks now, I guess). That'll happen, and it can be pretty ugly while it works itself out.
