NOTE: Winnebago County Sheriff Office (Or any local police departments) RARELY releases any press releases, so do not expect an update on this story. Sorry, but this is what happens when they encrypted.

Several sources are reporting the area of East State Street and Mill is currently shut down. Sources are reporting several police officers are on scene and are blocking and diverting traffic in the area.

Rockford Police Department and Illinois State police are on scene. It is not yet known what is going on due to the police encryption.

Please avoid the area and we will try to bring you updates if they become available

Mike Spera : Blocked the road from State Street at 12:55 and were gone by 1:30. No idea why, I work right around there and they wouldn’t tell our security anything.
