Police parked their squads far away from the actual scene.


UPDATE: We tried several times to get information on this incident.
And the officials said they WOULD NOT
be providing any information to Rockford Scanner. 

So it appears there will be no updates.   Sorry…

Sources are reporting a major scene in Boone County.

It happed overnight/early this morning near Beloit rd and Burnett.
On Burnett. 

Initial reports are saying that 1 person has been shot.
And that there is a possible hostage/standoff situation.

The victim is reported to still be inside the residence. 

Suspect is reported to be armed with a rifle (AR-15)

The incident command post is setup at the nearby school parking lot.

SWAT team arrived in an armored vehicle and a Humvee. 

Police would not release any information,
so don’t expect any updates anytime soon. 

If they do, we will post it. 

Still developing…
