CONFIRMED FATAL SHOOTING
Several officers are looking for the shooting suspect in the area of Rockford Memorial Hospital ER. In the subdivision just outside the ER. We have been told one person was captured by police and they were searching for a second suspect. No suspect information at this time.
We were told the victim has passed away. But we can not yet confirm this. We do ask that you keep the victim and their family in your thoughts and prayers.
The shooting scene is on Sablewood just south of Halsted. Several police evidence markers were on the ground approx. 2 houses down on the west side of the roadway. The detectives were focused on the roadway area and also the westside of the roadway at the scene. Google maps shows this to be the 3300 block of Sablewood.
Several RS fans were reporting a serious shooting on Sablewood approx. 1:15 am. At least one person was shot on Sablewood. Approx. 6 shots were fired. Injuries appeared to be life threatening. No suspect information, due to the encryption, so it is safe to assume the suspect has fled the scene.
