The address was 806, but didn’t catch the street name. It sounded like “Colca” but I was unable to locate it on the map. Might be “Coker” or something similar to those names.

Rockford Scanner™: Turkey Terrorism Part 2: At Rockford Memorial Hospital

Sources have sent us more turkey terrorism information and photos.

As you may recall, we did a brief story on the turkey terrorism in Loves Park. You can find that info at CLICK HERE

Several sources at the hospital told us earlier today some wild turkeys were terrorizing the parked vehicles in the parking lot of Rockford Memorial Hospital on Rockton ave. (Mercy Health)

As you know, turkeys are pretty much harmless. But they have been pretty bold in the last few months. Chasing vehicles, and as you can see chilling on top of them too.

We have not heard anyone being injured by turkeys. Only citizens being terrorized by them.   The one near Forest Hills rd (Tom The Turkey) chases moving vehicles.

The ones at Rockford Memorial Hospital appear to only stake claim to parked vehicles. Which it appears they have good tastes in jeeps too.

On a more serious note, if you do see some turkeys.
Please do not hurt them. They are pretty much harmless.

Sources reporting a scene at the Walmart near Roscoe/Rockton.

It happened around 5 pm today.

Police have only said this is a “Medical Assist” call and as you know they are encrypted and have not released any information.

Sources at the store said there was an altercation and a person was stabbed. As you know, we can not yet confirm this, due to the lack of police transparency and encryption.

Another source said it was an ill person.

Check back later for possible updates.

As you know since encrypting, the local police have labeled many violent crimes, as medical assists. Including murders.
(Police say it is the way the dispatchers add it to their system)

Rockford Scanner has reached out to the police several hours ago, for more information. They still have yet to contact us or give us any information.
