On Thursday night, the victim was in surgery at Rockford Memorial Hospital. Police describe his wounds as life threatening.
The shooting occurred right in between two popular restaurants no more than an hour after the dinner rush. Not surprisingly, police confirmed there were several witnesses that they are talking to.
One of those witnesses and Rockford Sgt. Andre Brass confirm a surprising aspect of this shooting. It was the victim who was chasing the suspect out of the Pizza Hut parking lot at the time shots were fired.
