Current information that has been provided to us



On Tuesday, July 18, 2023, at approximately 5:30
p.m., Rockford Police SCOPE officers attempted a traffic stop in the 1000 block of School Street
when the vehicle fled. At Avon and School Streets, officers deployed stop sticks (tire deflation
device) and the vehicle still continued down School Street. The car, with two occupants,
eventually stopped near the intersection of Carbaugh Avenue and School Street. The driver, later
identified as Ty Nichols, and his passenger, a 17-year-old male, were taken into custody. SCOPE
officers also located and recovered two loaded handguns, both with “switches” to make them
fully automatic, that were discarded from the vehicle. One of the guns also had a laser light
attachment and was reported stolen out of Chicago, Illinois.
The Winnebago County State’s Attorney’s Office reviewed the facts of the case and authorized
the charges listed below.

Ty Nichols, 19, Rockford

Unlawful Use of a Weapon

Aggravated Fleeing to Elude (2 counts)
Aggravated Unlawful Use of a Weapon (4 counts)
Revoked Driver’s License


Juvenile Male, 17, Rockford
