Rockford Police Investigate 2 Shootings Monday Night


Rockford Police investigate a pair of shootings in the city.

The first one happened just before 7:30pm Monday.  Police were called to the 2300 block of 23rd Street for multiple reports of shots fired.  Officers found several shell casings in the street.  Two houses and a garage were hit.  Witnesses told police they saw a silver or black car drive away from the scene northbound.  No one was hurt.

About 45 minutes later, a drive-by shooting in the 1400 block of Gorham Place, that’s just a few blocks west of Holy Family church.  We’re told the victim took themselves to a local hospital after being shot in the leg.  The injury is not considered to be life threatening.

Police haven’t identified any suspects in either shooting.
