Update: After we posted this, the Winnebago County Sheriff Office released a press release saying Jordan Spates is still on the loose. So that was not him that the police arrested. They still have yet to release any information on this incident.
Note: Around 4:30 pm today, the police did the same thing to another person near Winnebago and Chestnut. They blocked a subject in and took them into custody.
RPD is encrypted and have yet to release any information
Around 12:15 pm today several fans contacted us and said several undercover officers took a suspect into custody at gunpoint near Alpine and Broadway.
Fans said a suspect was trying to flee and was blocked in, and was trying to push the vehicle in front of them with the suspect vehicle, to try to get away.
Officers swarmed the vehicle and took the suspect into custody at gunpoint.
Several fans said the person resembled the man who was wanted for shooting a Winnebago County Sheriff Deputy the other day, but not yet confirmed.
NOTE: RPD is encrypted and has yet to release information. So we can not yet confirm it his him. We can confirm “SOMEONE” was taken into custody.
We will post updates as they become available
