Police said a 3-year-old boy was fatally shot in an apartment building in Rockford.
Leader Dan O’Shea said it wasn’t a drive-by shooting Thursday.
“At this point, we feel that he is in that one dwelling,” said Ushea. “It was a room inside the house, but we can’t go into the details of the case until it’s done.”
Winnebago County attorney Marilyn Hight Ross said the man who was present at the time was charged with shootings unrelated to the shooting.
Lamar Glover, who lives in the four-unit dorm, said the boy’s family had been there for about six months.
“They looked calm.” Glover told the Rockford Register Star, “The kids were adorable. I didn’t hear any drama or nothing. “
