Rockford Police: Man walks down street until he finds help after being shot

Posted:
ROCKFORD (WREX) -

Rockford Police are investigating a shooting on the city's west side.

It happened on S. Johnston Ave. around 11 p.m. Wednesday.

Sgt. Brad Stein said the victim was shot inside a car parked in the 1000 block of Johnston Avenue.

The suspect took off in the car, said Stein, and the victim walked down the street until he could find help.

Several people called 911 after hearing the shots fired, said Stein.  Winnebago County deputies showed up to the scene because several of those calls came in from county addresses.  Rockford Police officers also arrived and took over the crime scene investigation because the actual shooting happened in the city limits.

One of the men who called 911 for the victim said the man had been shot several times.

Stein said the victim was being looked at by doctors to determine the severity of his injuries.

Police do not immediately have a suspect or car description available.
