Rockford Man Accused of Shooting

A Rockford man is in jail facing charges of attempted murder. This after Rochelle Police received reports of shots fired on the 1100 block of Lincoln Highway just before midnight Sunday.

Several witnesses say they saw a man walk by the house and fire a gun towards it. One person was hit, though not seriously and the shooter got away on foot.

Officers later arrested 19-year-old Charles Chamness a short distance from the scene and charged him with the crime. Chamness is currently being held in the Ogle County Jail.
