Victim hospitalized after Saturday afternoon shooting, suspect in custody

A shooting in broad daylight sent one person to the hospital for emergency surgery, and the suspect is in custody.

Peoria Police won’t be releasing the ID for either suspect or victim, for now, but did confirm they were both adult men.

The pair were reportedly arguing near the intersection of Saratoga and Hurlbert around 2:30pm Saturday.

The suspect produced a gun and shot the victim, then ran into a nearby Little Dave’s Ribs restaurant.

He surrendered to police officers shortly after.

The victim was in surgery Saturday afternoon but police say they do not believe his injuries to be life-threatening.
