14-year-old arrested for August murder of Peoria teen
A 14-year-old boy was arrested Monday in the shooting death of 17-year-old Dahvie Brown-Bey in August.
Peoria police say the teenager was arrested in the 300 block of NE Perry for first-degree murder. He was later taken to the Juvenile Detention Center.
Brown-Bey died hours after he was shot at the intersection of Kansas and Wisconsin on Aug. 22.
The juvenile suspect's name will not be released due to his age. The Peoria County State's Attorney's Office has filed a petition to transfer his case to adult court.
In a press release, state's attorney Jodi Hoos said the 14-year-old shot Brown-Bey multiple times, "execution-style," in broad daylight. Several bystanders witnessed the shooting, including a 10-year-old and a 13-year-old.
"Those are the actions of a cold-blooded adult killer, and that’s exactly how my office will treat him," Hoos said.
A hearing on the transfer petition is set for Oct. 5 in Peoria County Circuit Court.
