Just after 7:30 p.m. Saturday night Rockford police headed to Logli Supermarket on East State Street. One person was caught shoplifting and employees were keeping him confined in the store until police got to Logli. But the shoplifter broke free and the employees chased him outside into the car port. That's when the shoplifter stabbed the two employees one of which was a security guard. 23 News has learned that one of those two stabbing victims died at an area hospital. The suspect got away in a vehicle that was occupied by other people and were driving frantically throughout nearby neighborhoods along Mulford and Newburg. This getaway vehicle eventually came crashing into a resident’s garage on south Mulford. Police caught the suspect and took him into custody.
