A fight over a girl leads to a shooting in Rockford tonight and the gunman is still on the loose. It happened this afternoon outside a house at 4Th Avenue and 9Th streets in Rockford.
Police say the victim was walking with a friend when two men pulled up in a small gray car. According to the victim's friend the men started arguing with the victim over a girl. One of the men then pulled out a gun and shot the victim in the lower leg. He's being treated right now at Swedish American and neighbors are left shaken.
The area has seen more than its share of trouble this week, an officer shot and killed a stabbing suspect in the parking lot of a Walgreens just blocks away on Monday.
