Sources are reporting a scene on the west side.

Several police officers from multiple police agencies have a perimeter set up in the area of Auburn and Springfield.

We have been told there was a chase with a white vehicle, that ended up near this location. Sounds like the vehicle may have crashed into a nearby cornfield.  The suspects then fled from the scene on foot and police have setup a perimeter.

If you live in the area, or are in the area. Stay inside, just in case they have a police k-9 assisting. No other information is available.

Rockford Scanner™: Scene on the East Side, Sources Said possible Death Investigation


Tuesday, July 2, 2019, shortly after 10:00 p.m., Rockford Police Patrol Officers responded to the 5300 block of Parliament Place in reference to a subject reportedly attempting to break into a window of a residence.

Upon arrival, officers located the 40-year-old male suspect, who was wearing hospital scrubs. Officers took the suspect into custody after a brief struggle. The suspect immediately then suffered a medical episode, and officers began performing CPR. The suspect was transported to a hospital where he later died.

Officers learned the suspect had earlier been transported by ambulance to a local hospital in the area for an unreported medical condition. He then fled from hospital staff and security a short time prior to the reported attempted break-in.

Chief Dan O’Shea activated the Winnebago Boone County Integrity Task Force immediately following the incident, which will conduct an independent investigation.

Sources are reporting a scene on the East side. 

It happened in the 5300 block of Parliment Pl a little after 10 pm.
That is located off of Roxbury, behind St Anthony Hospital.

What we can confirm so far: 

  • RPD and RFD were performing CPR on a person.
  • RPD call log shows this to be an “In progress Person”  in the 5300 block of Parliment pl at 10:03 pm.
  • Numerous police officers and what appeared to be detectives were on scene.


In the past, the police have labeled death investigation calls as “in progress person” calls in their call log. Also shootings, stabbings, robberies, etc…

Unconfirmed:  Sources have told us this is a death investigation.  We can only confirm CPR was being performed. We do not know the status of the victim. So we can not confirm the death, only the CPR.

We are awaiting the RPD to release information on this incident.

When they do we will update this.
