PEORIA — Police were investigating the shooting of two males Friday night near the corner of South Shelley and West Butler streets.

One victim was shot several times, at least once in the head. He was taken to OSF Saint Francis Medical Center, and police described his condition as grave Friday night. The second victim arrived at St. Francis in a private vehicle. Police said his wounds did not appear to be life threatening.

The shooting was reported at 8:11 p.m. Neighbors reported hearing gunshots and seeing a male on the ground who was not moving.

At the scene of the shooting, police blocked off most of Shelley between Butler and Kettelle streets with crime scene tape as they investigated for several hours. Officers with flashlights searched the lawn of one home and placed yellow cones on the street in front of it.

No information was available late Friday about a shooting suspect or suspects.
