Around 7:19 pm tonight the Rockford Fire Department were dispatched to an address on Broadway. Sounds like the 1000 block of Broadway, but not confirmed yet. At Off The Top Barber Shop
Scanner traffic is minimal only saying there is a stabbing victim near this location. The victim is at a barber shop. The victim has been stabbed in the stomach area. He has lost consciousness

UPDATE: The victim has been stabbed many times in the chest and stomach area.  The vitals on the victim are very weak. They have called everyone available at the ER to be ready. The victim was transported to a local ER. The victim is a male around 40 years old.  The injuries are life threatening.

Sounds like the stabbing happened at a different location, and the victim walked into the barber shop, to seek help.

RS FAN: What I have gathered from neighbors who were out when it happened was that there was a dispute at a house (a few neighbors suspect to be a drug house due to suspicious activity we all have seen….but didn’t want to be to snoopy.) There was a Sargent a couple blocks away and chased and captured one car. However a neighbor said she saw multiple people scatter from the area. The victim just ran to fast fuel but was actually shot in the alleyway.

On Friday, December 2, at around 6:30 p.m., Officers of the Rockford Police Department responded to the 3400 block of Louise St for an Aggravated Battery with a Firearm complaint.  Upon arrival Officers locate a 22 year-old Rockford man who had been shot several times.  The victim was transported to a local hospital for treatment of his wounds.  No suspects were identified upon initial investigation.

Some Kind Of Procession In The Rockford Area, Many Emergency Personnel Involved

See it Send it



Rockford Scanner sends our condolences to the family and friends of Karol Fricke.  Also to the Rockford police Department.

The Rockford Police Department is mourning the loss of Officer Karol Fricke, who passed away on Tuesday, November 15, 2016 after a brief illness.

Officer Fricke, a 24-year veteran of the force, started her career with the department in 1992 as a patrol officer and most recently, worked as a Community Services Officer assigned to District 3. Well-known for her active engagement in countless community meetings, activities and events, Officer Fricke was known for her willingness to engage, and her direct, no-nonsense approach blended with a warm smile, humor and wit.

Officer Fricke was an Operation Shattered Stars and Rockford Police Department Peer Supporter, a volunteer program that trains active and retired officers to lend support, share experiences and offer advice to fellow officers in need. In noting her interest to become a member of the pilot Peer-to-Peer Program that launched this year, Officer Fricke described herself as approachable, honest, caring, and willing to be called upon at any time in a crisis, a sentiment echoed by her fellow officers and colleagues.

“We are devastated by the loss of Officer Fricke who dedicated her life to serving and protecting the community in which she was born and raised,” said Chief Dan O’Shea. “Officer Fricke had a contagious energy and tenacity that permeated throughout the department. Her death is a tremendous loss – not just for the department, but the community-at-large. We are thankful to everyone for their outpouring of support during this difficult time.”
Off the clock, Karol was known for her love of family, her love of animals, her love of great food, and her zest for life. Having received a kidney transplant four years ago from her wife, Beth, Karol was passionate about authentically living each day, and had a unique understanding of the fragility each day brings. She could often be found with friends and family at her beloved eatery, Backyard Grill & Bar in Loves Park, or on a road trip adventure.
Services for Officer Karol Fricke will be held on Monday, November 21, 2016 at Rockford First Church, 5950 Spring Creek Road with a visitation from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. A police funeral service will begin at 1:00 p.m. and internment will immediately follow at Sunset Memorial Gardens, 8800 N. Alpine Road.

Motorists are advised to expect delays or use alternate routes in the areas surrounding Spring Creek and North Alpine Roads between the hours of 2:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. Local law enforcement agencies will be directing traffic in the area.

The procession is scheduled to begin from Rockford First Church, 5950 Spring Creek Road, and will proceed west on Spring Creek Road and then north on North Alpine Road to Sunset Memorial Gardens, 8800 N. Alpine Road.

Local law enforcement agencies and emergency responders should stage in the First Free Rockford parking lot located at 2223 N. Mulford Road.

Media should stage in the Rockford First parking lot. Cameras are permitted and there will be a staging area in the sanctuary and at the cemetery.
