Rockford Scanner™: Citizen Tells His Side Of The Story, Being Unarmed and A Rockford Police Officer Opened Fired On Him.





Details on the incident https://www.mystateline.com/news/rockford-police-name-officer-who-opened-fire-on-car-after-being-struck/

As you know at Rockford Scanner we try covering all sides of the story when possible.  The following is the victims side of the story. Note: We reached out to the RPD for info. and comments on this story, they have yet to respond.

The victim lawyer said it was OK for him to tell his side of the story now.


Alexandro N Elmore side of the story:

“She lied and said we rammed her vehicle to justify her shooting at us. The only damage to our vehicle was a bullet hole in the windshield.”

In January 2019 Rockford police Officer Carla Redd opened fired on a vehicle that had 3 occupants in it, near 8th st and 5th ave.

The tow truck driver who recovered the vehicle said “How can there have been a collision, when there is clearly no damage to the vehicles”

Officer Carla Redd said she was the victim of a “vehicular assault” and said the vehicle rammed her vehicle, so she opened fired on Alexandro N Elmore and his 2 friends.

The tow truck driver and the victims have all said there was no damage to the vehicle. So how is it possible they rammed her, if there was no damage? The photos in the video, also show no damage to the vehicle.

The victim said the following: “We started our day at the Eagles club on 11th St. we ate some wings and had some drinks and we left. We were not ready to go home yet so we stopped at the Golden bar on seventh Street. We realized our friend was passed out in the back seat and it was snowing out that night so we decided to not go in and to just drive home.

We turned right onto fifth Avenue, we drove down about one block inside a group of people standing in front of the Elida Lodge. we drove around the group of people came up to the next block. I was hot so I took off my jacket and my friend who is in the passenger side said watch out for someone who was either crossing the road or was on the side of the road.

I looked up and saw a black person with little twisties in her hair standing on the side of the road and firing a gun at us.

There was no reason at all for her to be firing the gun at us because we did nothing wrong. All we were doing was driving down the road.

She lied and said we rammed her vehicle to justify her shooting at us. The only damage to our vehicle was a bullet hole in the windshield.”

When the tow truck driver recovered the vehicle there was no damage at all from this incident except for a bullet hole.  The tow truck driver and also the victims said this. And the photos also show this.

Alexandro N Elmore: “No damage to the car anywhere, so how could we intentionally ram her vehicle? Please help us out. We did nothing wrong that night, we were just driving home and happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time”

Police have filed charges on him and his friend, and Alexandro N Elmore has turned himself in. He says his buddies and him are innocent. And Officer Carla Redd lied to cover her butt, for using deadly force while shooting at an unarmed citizen. And there was no accident, and he did not ram her like she claims. He sent us the photos as proof.


Note: He said the photos were taken right after the RPD released the vehicle back to him. You can clearly see the evidence markers on the vehicle. And no damage. (Note: We sat on this for awhile now.) Those photos were not “just taken” He sent them to us a long time ago. We been sitting on this awhile now, and just posted it today. He has turned himself in to jail on the 13th. Because he says he is innocent and didn’t want to be on the run for something he claimed he didn’t do. And wanted to clear his name, that is why he turned himself in. He was fearful of his life, because he said they were driving down the road and was shot at by  RPD officer Carla Redd, and fears for his life still since she has already tried to take his life by shooting at him once, and that is why he came to us. He wants his side of the story to be told, because he said he is innocent and fears for his life and wants his side of the story to be told.
