2-year-old cut by broken glass after window struck by gunfire on Auburn Street
Online Staff Report
At approximately 8:57 p.m., June 5, Rockford officers responded to 1420 Auburn St. in reference to an aggravated discharge of a firearm.
Upon arrival, officers spoke with the homeowner, who advised she was at home with her 2-year-old grandson when she heard three gunshots and then heard glass breaking in the bedroom where the child was sleeping.
The homeowner advised she went to the bedroom and observed blood/cuts on the child’s face that appeared to have been caused by the broken glass.
The child was transported to a local hospital for treatment of minor injuries. Officers conducted a neighborhood check, but little information was developed. Officers located three holes in the northeast bedroom window that appeared to be from a small-caliber handgun.
Anyone with information is urged to contact the Rockford Police Department at (815) 987-5824 or Crime Stoppers at (888) 769-STOP.
