Shots were fired at the Amoco station on Auburn and Central. Twenty-eight-year-old Patrick Gipson of Rockford was shot multiple times by an unknown assailant. Another victim, Lorranzo Wright, was shot once in the arm.
Gipson is in critical but stable condition. Wright was treated and released from Rockford Memorial Hospital. Witnesses say a man ran up to the van with Gipson and Wright in it and started shooting. The suspect then ran off.
Police do not have a description of the shooter or a motive at this time, but do say there was a connection to the fight in Beloit.
