This afternoon several emergency personnel were on scene of a shooting incident in the 2200 block of Shelley, on Rockford’s West side.
Reports of several gunshots were fired.
One person was grazed by the gunfire, and refused medical attention.
We have been told the RPD has suspect information, but has yet to release it.
After we posted this, RPD released a statement on the incident:
On Thursday, September 5, 2019 at approximately 1:30 p.m., Rockford Police Patrol Officers responded to a shots fired call in the 2200 block of Shelly Drive. Upon arrival, officers located a 22-year-old male victim suffering from a graze wound. He declined medical attention. Officers learned the victim was with two other males in the backyard when two suspects fired shots at them after running through the residence. The suspects also took an undisclosed amount of cash and fled in a burgundy, four-door SUV. The incident does not appear to be random.
