Rockford Scanner™: Suspect Runs Off With A Gun, Possibly An Officers Gun




 

Sources are reporting a scene on the West side. 

Reports of a suspect that ran off with a gun, possibly an officers gun. A silver revolver. 

Several officers from several jurisdictions are on scene including the state police. 

Several officers are near Halsted, Rockton, Kilburn, Searles, Glenwood, N Horseman, etc… a very large perimeter.

Sources said black sweat shirt and grey pants the suspect is wearing. 

Update: Someone saw the alleged suspect running behind some house near Sablewood.  We were told it was a silver revolver the suspect has. Initial reports are saying it is a possible officers gun. But some are saying the local police do not carry revolvers. Others said some officers still do carry them as a backup.  So unknown, all we know is there is an armed suspect running through the neighborhood near here.  We have been told there were 3 shots fired, but again police are encrypted and have not confirmed this or released any information on the incident.

RPD has yet to confirm this or release any info. on the incident or suspects.
