Rockford Scanner Note: Warm Weather And A Violent Saturday in Rockford ~ http://rockfordscanner.com/2017/04/warm-weather-and-a-violent-saturday-in-rockford/
Rockford Police responded to the 600 block of 27th St at around 3:00 A.M. for a large party. When officers were in the area several people were seen running and then fleeing in cars as gunshots were heard. During the investigation officers learned that three houses in the area were struck by gunfire. Two victims arrived at a local hospital with gunshot wounds from the incident on 27th St. One of the victims had minor injuries was treated and released from hospital. The second victim had a serious injury but was in stable condition.
This is an ongoing investigation.
UPDATE from RS fan Alexis LaSala: Shortly after these shots were fired, a shooting victim was reported to have been brought into a local ER. They do not yet know if it is related to this call, but it is believed to be related. Unknown on the severity of the injuries at this time. No suspect information. Still developing.
Around 3:30 am this morning several Rockford Scanner fans were reporting they heard a ton of gunshots on Rockford’s east side.
We received reports from several locations all over the east side.
All were reporting hearing many upon many shots.
Rockford Scanner fan Alexis LaSala sent us a video with many officers on scene near 27th st and Windpoint. This is near Twin Sisters Park. This is the location where the shots were fired at. At this time, it is unknown if anyone was injured or if any damage happened. Officers do have the crime scene tape up, so they do have a scene near this location. Still developing.
