Peoria Police Spokeswoman Amy Dotson confirmed that this morning’s shooting turned fatal. Labeled the 22nd homicide this year.
The man was found inside a building in the 500 block of Spring Street, where a reported party was taking place.
It is there that police believe the man was shot.
The unidentified man was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Dotson adds that it is too early to tell if Wednesday’s homicide is connected to the recent string of shootings that have happened within a mile radius in the last four days…including a homicide Sunday night on Northeast Monroe.
There is no suspect information, and anyone with information is asked to call Peoria Police at 673-4521, or Crimestoppers at 673-9000.
