UPDATE:In custody now
Sources said the suspect escaped and is currently on the loose. When officers went into the residence, the alleged suspect was not there.
Sources are reporting a scene in Rockford.
It is a standoff with a possible armed individual in the 400 block of Kennon.
It has been going on for several hours now.
Several officers, SWAT team, police robot and a police K-9 are on scene.
They have sent the police robot in, and it appeared they were putting an armored vest onto the police K-9 to possibly send the dog in here shortly.
Neighbors told us that the man held a knife to his mothers throat. And there is a possible gun involved. Neighbors said the man either hit a police officer today or had hit a police officer in the past. So that is why the police are taking a lot of precautions with this standoff. As you know police have not confirmed this yet. All we can confirm is police are having a standoff with an alleged suspect, for an unknown reason.
The police only released a statement, telling the public to avoid the area for police activity. Ten at 2 pm they said the situation in the 400 block of Kennon has been resolved. The street is again open.
