Peoria police: 6 people hospitalized after separate weekend shootings
Peoria police are investigating a pair of weekend shooting incidents that sent six individuals to the hospital.
A department spokesperson said officers responded to the OSF Saint Francis Medical Center emergency room just after 1 a.m. Sunday after four people arrived with gunshot wounds.
A 22-year-old man had gunshot wounds to his arm and chest and remains in stable but critical condition. Three other victims, another 22-year-old and two 18-year-olds, had other various gunshot wounds that were less severe; they are all in stable condition.
Before this incident, police had reported to a large gathering of vehicles in the rear lot of Peoria High School. Many vehicles left the lot when police arrived.
Officers later determined the initial four victims were wounded after shots were fired from one vehicle into another near the intersection of War Memorial Drive and Knoxville Avenue.
While officers were at the hospital, two teen boys arrived with gunshot wounds from a separate incident at Grandview Park. Both are listed in stable condition.
Both shootings remain under investigation. No arrests have been made and no suspect information is available.
