UPDATE: Police say the situation was brought under control at 11:20 this morning. The man has now been identified as Lilrobert Adams, who was picked up earlier on a domestic battery warrant. He did NOT have a gun, but had managed to move his cuffed hands from behind his back to in front of himself while in the back of the police van known as a "squadrol."
Shortly after 6 a.m. Friday morning, Rockford police arrested the 20-year-old man. During transport to the city's criminal justice center, Adams told officers he had a handgun and meant to do the officers harm.
