ROCKFORD (WREX) - Rockford police are investigating shots fired and a resulting traffic crash near Napoleon Street and North Main Street.

Police responded to 1020 North Main for a traffic crash around 4:20 a.m. Tuesday. Upon arrival, they found a Suzuki Grand Victoria against a tree, occupied by two females and a male. The individuals told police they were parked in the 300 block of Napoleon Street when an unknown vehicle drove up and fired several shots at their vehicle.
