A man was shot early Wednesday morning during a robbery attempt in a Rockford subdivision.

Officers were dispatched to the 4700 block of Wolverton Lane, just off Alpine, around 1:10 a.m. There they met with a 32-year-old man who was suffering from a gunshot wound to his torso.

The victim told police he and a friend were walking in the area when they were approached by two armed men who demanded items from them. During the robbery, one of the suspects opened fire, hitting the victim. He was later treated and released from a local hospital for his injuries.

The suspects fled the area in a silver pick-up truck. They’re described as black males, 5’11” tall, thin builds, wearing dark clothing.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 815-966-2900.
