2 juveniles shot in Peoria's Center Bluff

Yellow police tape stretches across a blurry crime scene. It says "Police Line Do Not Cross." The text "WCBU Police and Fire" lays on top of that photo.

Two juveniles were taken to a Peoria hospital after a shooting Monday afternoon in the city's Center Bluff neighborhood.

Officers responded to three separate ShotSpotter alerts in the 500 block of West Gift around 3:30 p.m. A total of 21 rounds were fired.

Officers found two males with gunshot wounds. One victim is in critical condition in the hospital, with life-threatening injuries. The other suffered non life-threatening injuries.

There is currently no suspect information. Police are continuing to investigate. Anyone with information is asked to call Peoria police at (309) 494-8480, text the tip411 line, or call CrimeStoppers anonymously at (309) 673-9000.
