ROCKFORD (WIFR) --Two men are hit by gunfire after a party on Rockford’s southwest side.
Officers say around 4am Saturday, two men were shot outside a home in 1200 block of Clover Avenue. One was shot in the elbow, the other in the foot and both are expected to be okay. Police say the owner of the home was having a party and had just kicked everyone out when the shooting happened. Earlier this week, the Rockford Police noted an increase in the number shots fired cases in that neighborhood, around the Ethnic Village. That’s why they started surge patrols, doubling the amount of officers patrolling the area.
