Earlier today there was a shooting incident near 28th, near a local school.  

RS note: Numerous parents have reached out to us, and expressed their extreme displeasure with the Rockford School District 
in failing to notify the parents of the lockdown, due to the shooting nearby. 

RPD and the Rockford School district have not released any information on the incident, (last we looked)
If they did, can someone send us the info…

So we can only tell you what information that has been provided to us via citizens. 

There was a shooting near 28th, earlier today which prompted a nearby school to go on lockdown. 

Reports of several emergency personnel on scene. 

Alleged suspect is a Black teen male, wearing a black tracksuit like Addis outfit. 

Update: NUMEROUS parents told us they were not notified.
But after we posted this, a source sent us this:

  • All parties involved are innocent, until proven guilty in a court of law.
  • We can only provide information that IS provided to us. 
  • As you know, the local police encrypted and are not transparent.
