Rockford Scanner™: Possible Shooting and Standoff in Rockford



On June 2, 2018 at 5:30 a.m. officers of the Rockford Police Department responded to the 900 block of N. Rockton reference a shot fired. Upon arrival officers met with a woman who reported a female just shot at her. The victim said the suspect went into a house in the area after the shooting. While on scene, officers met with people in the area who reported there may be other subjects in the house with the shooting suspect. Officers surrounded the house and attempted to call out the occupants. There was no response. Members of the Rockford Police Department Negotiations Unit and SWAT Team were called out to assist. At 10:15 a.m. the suspect in the shooting, Dominique Patterson, came to the Winnebago County Criminal Justice Center and requested to talk to the police. She was taken to District Two-Detective Bureau.
