Video from the scene
UPDATE: The scene was on 9th st. but several officers were on/near 11th st for the perimeter. They concentrated their search in the Keith Creek. Still no suspect information or what happened. This is obviously a dangerous situation, since there are a lot of officers on scene. Please avoid the area.
Main Scene was near 6th ave and 9th
Officers on scene said they were not able to talk to Rockford Scanner. Fans that live in the area told us that the scene is a man with a gun, that fled from a vehicle.
Rockford police were reported to be at 9th street and 6th ave for an unknown scene involving many police. Police were seen at many locations forming a large perimeter including a K9 searching for a suspect.
When we asked for information from the RPD, they said “I am not able to release any information”
Due to this and radio encryption we have no suspect information available at this time.
Rockford police are encrypted so no information is available from them at this time.
Several Rockford Scanner fans have contacted us and said there are multiple police officers on 11th St. in the areas of 6th Avenue all the way down to the railroad.
