Rockford Scanner™: Shooting Incident on The East Side


RS Source sent us the following: 

“Hi RS,
There were shots fired on 5th Ave & 10th Street around half hour/45 minutes ago. I was on 5th Ave facing 11th Street when a gray Ford Explorer turned off 11th Street heading westbound on 5th Ave.
They slowed down as they turned the corner, then proceeded to gun it (no pun intended lol) towards 10th Street. They did a drastic U- turn when they reached 10th Street, fired approximately 5-6 shots, and speed back down 5th Ave, turned right on 11th and disappeared.
I sat in my car, shocked, for a few moments until I realized they knew I probably saw them, since my headlights were on when they passed by me to get to 10th, so I got out.
RPD was on scene and I stood in the road and attempted to flag down a police officer, who told me he was busy 💁
Please keep my info anonymous, since apparently they don’t want the public’s help when they witness a shooting.
Thanks for all you do- and have a great night. Stay safe!!”
