Rockford Scanner™: Man Shot Multiple Times, Police Arrest Alleged Suspect



On 10-31-18 shortly after 2:30 p.m. the Janesville Police Department responded to a shooting in the 1500 block of Holiday Dr. The first officer on scene located a 32 year old male resident of Janesville that had multiple gunshot wounds to his legs, hand, and upper torso.

Janesville Police Officers located a vehicle near the intersection of Alden Rd. and Blackbridge Rd. that was operated by a 22 year old male subject. The male was taken into custody without incident, and a handgun was recovered.

The victim was transported to Mercy Hospital and underwent surgery for his wounds. At the time of this press release his wounds don’t appear to be life threatening.

The suspect and the victim know each other, and this incident appears to be the result of an ongoing feud between the two.
The suspect was charged and is being held at the Rock County Jail awaiting court proceedings.
