Rockford Scanner™: Woman Shot on Rockford’s West Side




Two females sustained non-life-threatening injuries during a shooting at Auburn Manor early this morning. Anyone with information on the incident should call RPD at 815-966-2900


A little after 1 am this morning I was working a scene near Preston ~ (Click Here) When I heard several gunshots to my North.  

A short time later I was told there was a shooting victim at the Auburn Manor on Auburn st.  The victim was reported to be on the 1st floor of the building. 

I was told there was 1 confirmed victim, possibly 2 victims.  While at the scene I saw emergency personnel tending to a female victim. She was reportedly shot in the leg. 

I did not see a 2nd victim. I only saw the 1 victim. So I can only confirm the 1 victim at this time. 

It is not yet known on the severity of the injuries. 

Police have yet to release any suspect information, or any info. on the shooting. 

I did see police searching the area to the North of Auburn Manor. So it is safe to assume the suspect may have fled to that neighborhood. Because police were searching that neighborhood. But not yet confirmed. 

Check back later for updates.

100 STRONG was formed in January of 2016 by a handful of bold men that made the call to ALL concerned men in Rockford that realize that we have no right to complain about the problems that’s going on in Rockford if all we’re gonna do is open our mouth but not be willing to lift a finger to help towards a solution. This call to action was a response to the several deaths, shootings and chaotic state of mind of the Rockford Youth.

They held a fundraiser event on Saturday August 17th 2019 in the afternoon at their safe house at 4111 Auburn, Across from the Auburn Manor.

They are a non profit organization that helps the community.  The fundraiser on Saturday was to help with funding the young bull athletics team. All donations go towards transporting the children to and from games and practice, equipment, referees, etc. Also for our community center that keeps our youth out of the streets and helps them and their families when in need .

They had delicious chicken sandwich’s and a pop for a few bucks.
We highly recommend you trying their chicken sandwich’s!


We sat down and talked with one of the board members of the 100 Strong, Danny B Worley.  He describes what 100 Strong is, how they help the community,  their goals and how they started, etc… Take a few minutes and watch the interview below.
