A U.S. Marshals task force officer was shot while trying to serve an arrest warrant at a Rockford hotel Thursday morning and the suspect remains at large, police said as they searched for him in northern Illinois.

Authorities initially said officers were at the scene investigating an "active shooter" situation at the Extended Stay hotel off North Bell School Road.

Rockford police said members of the task force were attempting to serve an arrest warrant around 9:15 a.m. when they were fired on. One officer was hit in the gunfire. His or her condition was not immediately known.

Police said the suspect, armed with a rifle, fled the room and remained at large as of 10:50 a.m. Thursday.

Rockford police identified the suspect as 45-year-old Floyd E. Brown, believed to be a resident of the Springfield area. His suspected vehicle is a light blue or silver Mercury Grand Marquis with a license plate of BF13112 or a temporary plate of 4850256.

Police spokesman Andre Brass warned that Brown is considered "armed and dangerous" and urged residents not to approach if he is seen but to call 911.

Residents were advised to avoid the area.

Unless that was hotel this started at. Probably. News unclear. Too busy pushing weapon shaming

Bets on if he was a legal gun owner?
After looking at an article on this um no.

His records with the Illinois Department of Corrections show he was paroled in January 2018 from a 13-year sentence for nine charges of residential burglary. That sentence followed a 2 ½ year sentence in 2005 for one count of unlawful restraint and violation of an order of protection; and an 8-year sentence on a 2001 charge of felony possession of a firearm. It’s unclear how much time he served in each of those sentences.

The Illinois State Police says the McHenry County Sheriff's Deputy who was shot in Rockford this morning has died.

How sad that a significant repeat offender was out on the streets, and now a police officer has died. We're way too soft on repeat offenders. What kind of crimes had he been convicted?

All the networks are very slow here. NBC 5 hadn't updated their site for a few hours it seemed. Last they posted, they were still in negotiations with him.

how sad RIP. If the 100 priors is true.... how do these career criminals get 100 fucking chances? Blows my mind, even if they were all petty offenses, what the fuck justice system?

The suspect crashed his silver Grand Marquis near Lincoln around 11:30 a.m. after leading Illinois State Police on a chase that reached speeds over 100 mph, authorities said. He has refused to leave the car, and reports from troopers at the scene said he was pointing a rifle out of the car.
