Just before midnight Saturday Rockford police responded to the Auburn Manor apartment complex at 4212 Auburn Road, after receiving a report of an aggravated battery with a firearm.
Police officers located a security guard on the premises with a gun shot wound. The guard was patrolling the complex on Saturday night when he was shot.
He was transported to a local hospital to be treated for non life threatening injuries.
No arrests have yet been made, but police are looking for a black male in his twenties that was wearing black pants and a black shirt.
