Rockford Scanner™: Suspect Needs Medical Attention After A Scene On The East Side

  • by

We sat on this story for awhile in hopes to see how transparent the RPD were going to be on this story. RPD has yet to release any information. So we can only tell you what has been told to us via sources. 

Thursday afternoon numerous police were working a scene near 11th st, in the area of 7th ave.

Several police officers and a police k-9 were working the scene. One person was in handcuffs and needed medical attention. The injuries were believed to be non life threatening. We have been told there was a shooting on the East side again, and this might have been an alleged suspect.  The suspect was reportedly running from police, and crashed through a nearby fence of a residence while fleeing from police. But like we stated above, RPD has not released any information and we can only tell you what has been told to us via sources.  All we can confirm is several officers were working a scene, 1 person in custody and needed medical attention.
