Crusader Community Health

A man is in police custody after he fired shots inside Crusader Community Health's facility on Broadway in Rockford.

The armed suspect, 36-year-old Steven Dummer of Rochelle, threatened suicide on the second floor of the clinic Monday afternoon.

Police were able to peacefully negotiate with the suspect after a standoff lasting nearly four hours. The facility was secured and all occupants were able to evacuate safely.

One person can make a difference!
