Rockford Scanner™: Numerous Police Working A Scene On The West Side

  • by

Update: Sources sent us some videos from the scene.

They said the police broke out a window and threw tear gas into a get together of approx 60 people. Reports of several people needing medical attention due to the police tear gas, including some pregnant women and some others that had bad health issues. One of the pregnant females is still in the hospital. Police had their rifles out while at the scene.  You can clearly hear in the video several people coughing from the tear gas.

RPD and WCSO have not yet released any information.


Sources are reporting a scene with approximately 20 police officers working the scene.

It happened just before midnight in the area of North Main and Whitman.

Reports of multiple police officers and emergency personnel working a scene near this location.

We were told this is possibly another shooting scene and there was  1 person possibly needing medical attention

But as you know the local police are encrypted and have yet to released any information.

Their call log shows this as a “service to other agency” at 924 N. Main St.

In the past police have labeled several violent crimes under service to other agency.

Crimes such as shootings, stabbings, robberies, murders, dead bodies, etc…

This call the Rockford police have it as a service to other agency, and the Winnebago County Sheriff office also has this as a service to other agency in their call log.

So it is unclear exactly what happened other than what Sources have told us. The call logs for both agencies are showing service to the other agency.

So the original type of call was not posted in the call logs at all. Other than both agencies on scene are reporting they are assisting the other one.
