Total of 9 “Weapons Violation” which is shots fired according to the Rockford police.
Rockford Police are encrypted, so no suspect information on any of these shots fired calls. And we think it is safe to assume, all the suspects got away. Since we are unable to hear if they did, due to the encryption and the majority of the time they do.
* There were 2 “Medical Assist” calls. In the past the RPD has labeled shooting calls “Medical Assists” so we feel that is safe to assume these might have been shooting calls, due to the RPD previously labeling shooting victim calls “Medical Assists” in the past. These medical assist calls happened in the 600 block of Morgan around 7:34 am and also in the 1300 block of N Main around 12:11 pm
* There were 2 “In progress” calls. RPD label home invasions and robberies “In progress” in the past. These happened in the 1200 block of Johnathon around 6:11 am (Shooting/Stabbing/Robbery according to RPD) and also 6100 block of E State around 8:54 pm (Home invasion/Burglary according to RPD)
* There was an “Aggravated Battery” call in the 2500 block of Ohio Parkway in the Rolling Green Neighborhood around 9:26 am. An Aggravated Battery means a weapon was used, or permanent injuries to the victim.
Like we stated above, Rockford Police are encrypted so NO suspect information is available. Everyone please be safe out there. As you can see, the cold does not stop the criminals from committing crime. An informed community, is a safe community
