UPDATE: This is a confirmed shooting victim.
A man approx. 26 years old was shot. He is listed in serious condition, but is expected to survive. No suspect information, due to the encryption.
UPDATE: RPD said “medical assist” But this is a confirmed shooting incident. Man was shot and is in serious condition, but is expected to live
Wonder how many of the “Medical assists” listed below, are also shooting victims?
Several sources reporting a scene at a Rockford gas station.
Numerous police and fire personnel are on scene at 3299 S Alpine at the Marathon Gas Station.
Crime scene tape all over the area and the crime scene unit.
RPD labeled the call as a “Medical Assist” in their call logs.
Seems to be a lot of police on scene for it to be a “medical assist” and why would you need crime scene tape up and a crime scene unit, if it was medical?
We been told it was a victim that was robbed and shot.
But can not confirm this due to the encryption.
You can see in the videos above and below, it definitely appears to be more than just a “Medical Assist”
Update from a fan: “I live in the neighborhood. Definitely not medical assistance. Owner said a person was shot, but not at gas station. I will send you pictures of area outside my house right after the ” medical asst” The officer said to me, reports of gunshot. Asked me if I heard anything.”
We are wondering how many of these “medical assists” are more than medical related?
