1 dead, 3 hurt in New Year’s Day shooting at Rockford hotel

ROCKFORD, Ill. (AP) — Rockford police say one man is dead and three others were injured during a New Year’s Day shooting at a hotel.

Rockford Police Chief Dan O’Shea says there was a large group of people fighting in a hallway at Cliffbreakers Riverside Hotel and Conference Center early Sunday. He says several people exchanged gunfire. The chief called it “chaotic at best.” He says investigators are trying to figure out exactly what happened.

O’Shea says no arrests have been made and is asking for anyone with information to contact authorities.

The Winnebago County Coroner’s Office pronounced a 34-year-old man dead at 5:35 a.m. Sunday at the scene. His name wasn’t immediately released. The others wounded were in their 20s and 30s. O’Shea says one of the victims was listed in critical condition.
