The police confirmed that four people died of injuries, and five others sustained wounds during the riot in and around Rockford, Illinois, on the 1st of February 2020, CNBC reported. 

Expressing the event as a “random and senseless act of violence,” Mayor Tom McNamara showed deep anguish over the events that happened. The Winnebago County Police Officer chief Carla Redd was astonished. 

She could not express what she felt exactly. The victims were a woman and a man who were stabbed during the deflation of a home in Winnebago County.

A perpetrator was quickly arrested and this assures that there are no other individuals who might be connected to the events. While local and federal agencies continue to investigate the case, their efforts have so far failed to elucidate a reason behind the conduct of the offender. 

The dispatch center in Rockford received calls from many people who reported medical emergencies and house invasions, and thus the callers immediately realised the severity and urgency of the situation.

Winnebago County’s Sheriff, Gary Caruana, described the sequence of events where intrusion took place and the woman was seriously injured, while a man who attempted to help got injured too. 

Beyond this, aid programmes for residents have also been announced to cater for their emotional and mental well-being following the terrible ordeal. The police investigation is still ongoing and the Rockford community is dealing with the aftermath of this mishap.
