A deputy with the U.S. Marshals Service was shot Thursday morning in a Rockford, Illinois, hotel by a man he was there to arrest and who is currently on the run, authorities said.
The suspect, Floyd E. Brown, 45, immediately fired on officers at the Extended Stay America hotel off N. Bell School Road. He fled the hotel and is on the run, said Andre Brass of the Rockford Police Department.
The injured officer has not been identified and his condition is unknown. It was not known what Brown was being arrested for.
“We just want to end this incident peacefully with his surrender. That’s what we are looking for,” Brass said.
