Police are searching for a suspect, after a shooting injures one man at an East side park.
The shooting happened around 4 PM Sunday at Keye-Malquist Park in the 1600 block of 16th Ave. Police say a group of people were playing basketball when a silver mini van drove up, and shot one man in the stomach. The victim was taken to the hospital with a life threatening injury. The suspect, described as a black male in his late teens or early 20’s, then drove through the park firing off more shots, but no one else was injured.
No arrest have been made. Rockford police are working with the Park District police on the investigation.
