The Woodstock Police Department Investigations Division continues to aggressively investigate this incident.

As part of a multi-faceted investigation, WPD Detectives are collaborating with investigators in and around the Rockford area in an attempt to determine if the Woodstock incident is connected in any way to a reported Stolen Vehicle and several reported Armed Robberies in the Rockford region; all occurring within a short, but plausible, time span for these incidents to be connected.

This multi-jurisdictional investigation includes witness, forensic, and electronic information and evidence.

To best ensure that a quality investigation occurs, WPD Detectives are taking the time to work methodically and systematically to assemble an “airtight” investigation; we strive to hold those who come to Woodstock and commit such crimes accountable for their actions.

Detectives will continue to follow-up on all potential evidence and leads as they become available.

Understandably, some Woodstock citizens are concerned about the current safety of our community; crimes like this are a rarity in such a safe community as Woodstock.

What can be assured is that WPD Officers are continuously available for anyone who believes they are in danger or if they believe that a crime is being, or about to be, committed.

  1. More examples of the wonders of diversity in a sanctuary state.
    DEMOCRATS did that.

  2. All those incidents and no description of the offenders ? Let me guess ……

  3. Saw a story in the NW Herald that said a house nearby, not the house of the woman with a shoulder injury, had a bullet enter a bathroom and strike the mirror over the vanity. A grandmother babysitting a toddler had just moments before used that bathroom.

    Senseless, reckless, criminal use of guns ongoing in Illinois and all over the U.S. A most recent very tragic murder by gun was that of a beautiful 8-year old girl in Little Village in Chicago innocently walking with her mother on a sidewalk in broad daylight last Saturday.
