Two teenagers were shot on Rockford's west side. Rockford police say the shootings happened around 7 p.m. Wednesday night in the 800 block of Royal Avenue.

Sixteen-year-old Michael Holliman was shot in the chest.

Another man was shot following an argument in the 400 block of North Central around 9 p.m. Wednesday night.

Rockford Police say 27-year-old Antwon Roby was shot in the stomach after a man he'd been fighting with earlier showed up with a gun.

The two were taken to Rockford Memorial Hospital for non-life threatening injuries. The suspect is a black man with a light complexion, in his 20s, last seen in a gray vehicle.
