From RPD: On Sunday, shortly after 9 p.m., Rockford Police officers responded to Dollar Tree (6340 E. State St.) for a possible robbery in progress. Everyone inside the store made it out, but officers learned the male suspect was still inside with what appeared to be a firearm. Officers are working to make contact with the suspect at this time. The incident is ongoing and more information will be released when possible. Please avoid the area.


RPD, SWAT, RFD and many other officers are on scene. The SWAT team is trying to communicate with someone inside the Dollar Tree.

The business is surrounded by many officers.

Police said there is an armed man inside the business, armed with a handgun. This was originally called in as a robbery in progress around 9 pm.

Officers saw the armed man running inside the store with a gun.

No other details at this time.



Sources are reporting approx. 20 police officers with their guns drawn at a business on the East side.

It happened at the Dollar Tree/Pet Smart area on E State.

Sources said there is 20 + police officers on scene and they all have their guns drawn.

It is not yet clear what is going on. But it is obviously a dangerous situation. So please avoid the area.

Still developing

Jason Shull: 
This was my friend. He was pulled over for not using his turn signal. When he refused to talk to the officer without a lawyer present, they drew assault rifles on him.”


RPD will only confirm at traffic stop. No other details at this time.

Unknown at this time if this is related: http://rockfordscanner.com/2019/01/07/rockford-scanner-armed-robbery-call-at-best-buy/


RS Sources are reporting a lot of police have their guns drawn on some people in a dark colored van on E State street by Perkins.

They are talking to the people in the vehicle with their megaphones.

Unknown what is going on, but since they have their guns drawn that means this is a felony traffic stop (at minimum)  so you want to avoid this area because this is a dangerous situation.

At least 6 cops on scene. They have blocked off the area. The officers are using their scoped rifles, pointed at the people inside the van.

We will try bringing you updates as they become available

Update: Racheal M. said: There is also about 10 or so cops at Best Buy as well right now. It appears the occupants of the van are detained and police are searching the van now.
