A man is being treated for a gunshot wound to his leg after a brawl breaks out in Rockford.

Officers were called to the area of Broadway and 7th Street Wednesday night for a group of 20-30 men beating up another man. Shot were fired and one man was hit in the left leg. He was taken to SwedishAmerican Hospital where he is in stable condition.

No arrests have been made in this incident.
