They were concerned about her well-being after an incident involving her ex-boyfriend, Donald King, who is her child’s father.

On Thursday, King reportedly punched Wilkerson’s current boyfriend in the face as he dropped her off at work.

Police say King then shot the man twice in the legs. The victim was able to escape and call for help a short distance away.

Wilkerson then left with King, according to authorities. The car was recovered a few hours later on Sioux Terrace in Madison.

King is now wanted for aggravated assault and kidnapping. The search for him is ongoing.
