The ONLY thing we can confirm right now, due to the police encryption. Is there is a large police presence for a scene on the East Side. Due to the police encryption……
Update at 8:30 pm from RS fan:
There were two rounds of shots fired behind the apartment buildings on St. Louis between two silver sedans, one had a window shot out. The cars quickly fled opposite directions on Charles and one man continued on foot through Walgreens parking lot and fired another round of shots.
The man then ran behind the army surplus store, jumped the fence and came into an office through an unlocked back door. One employee saw him but did not initiate contact. He was breathing heavy, pacing and talking on the phone. He then left that building, tossed the gun in the bushes (discovered later by the K-9 unit.) He shed his black hoodie in the parking lot and fled across the street.
The police were hot on his trail and apprehended him in an alley north of Charles, just east of Sams.
As of 3:30pm there was still no update from the Rockford Police.
