On Friday, September 29, 2017 shortly after 10:24 a.m. patrol officers from the Rockford Police Department responded to the area of Crosby Street and Adams Street for a report of shots fired. When officers arrived, they determined an older model Jeep Cherokee was shooting at a smaller blue vehicle, possibly a Mazda. Officers learned the rear window of the Mazda had been shot out. Both vehicles left the area before the police arrived.
Officers later located the Jeep Cherokee in the 3100 block of 10th Street and interviewed the occupants of the vehicle. No charges related to the shooting were brought against the subjects in the Jeep Cherokee.
The Rockford Police Department is asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the smaller blue vehicle and its occupants. Anyone with information regarding this incident is encouraged to contact the Investigations Bureau 779-500-6551 or Crime Stoppers 815-963-7867.
