Around 11:54 pm tonight several officers were dispatched to the gas station on Linden rd and Alpine.
Scanner traffic is saying a male pulled a gun on a female at this intersection. The female is hysterical, so the call taker is not able to get much information.
The suspect was last seen southbound on Alpine. The vehicle is a gray truck with the word “RAM” on the front. White male wearing a hoody, armed with a gun.
UPDATE: After police investigated, they believe the female had called 911 and made a false claim. They said that she was trying to get her boyfriend in trouble again. Officers are thinking about arresting her for misuse of the 911 and maybe more, via scanner traffic.
Around midnight officers were dispatched to an address on Springfield in Rockford. Scanner traffic is saying there was a party at a house. The homeowner pulled out a gun and said “The party is over and everyone to leave” there are also reports of a 14 year old female passed out, underage drinking and also some people fighting. Several officers are en route, as well as medical. Still developing.

RS fan I was In a car right behind the white car that crashed. a black suv blew the stop sign, forcing the white car to swerve into a pole. Then the black suv ran into a truck and then the guy got out and ran.
From the Beloit PD: Yesterday on 2nd shift officers responded out the area of the 1800 block of Dewey for a found property report. When officers got there they were informed that a child had located a loaded handgun in the back yard. The boy was with a friend, and while playing they discovered the gun laying in the yard. It is possible that it came from a suspect who had run from police on the previous day, but that aspect is still under investigation.
We would ask that you all talk to your kids and let them know that if they should happen to see a gun, a knife, a needle, anything suspicious in the yard, to leave it right where it is. We know that toy guns should have an orange tip, but sometimes these are removed from fake guns, and sometimes they are added to real guns by offenders who are trying to make their gun into something it isn’t. Either way, please tell your little ones to leave it be. More than anything we don’t want to see anyone get hurt. We also know that evidence that we may need from those guns can get contaminated once it is handled.
Thanks for having a conversation with your kids about this. We know that an accident with a gun would be terribly tragic.
From the Beloit PD:
Yesterday members of the VCIT (Violent Crime Interdiction Team) observed 20 year old Denarus Crump out walking. They knew that Crump had a warrant out for his arrest issued by his Probation Agent. When officers got out with Crump and placed him in handcuffs for his warrant, a search was conducted. During this search a loaded handgun was recovered. Crump is a felon, so just the possession of the firearm was a heck of a good grab.
Crump was arrested for Felon in Possession of a Firearm as well as his warrant. He is currently being housed at the Rock County Jail.
