At least 13 people were shot, and two left with serious injuries, just before 5 a.m. Sunday morning in Peoria, Illinois.
NBC 5 reported that a fight occurred “near the intersection of Water Street and Hamilton Street.”
ABC News reported that those fighting were part of a “crowd of nearly 200 people.” Gunshots rang out during the fight.
When police responded they found “an adult male who was shot in the neck and a female who was shot in the back.”
Eleven others went to hospitals to have shooting wounds treated as well.
Illinois requires that all would-be gun owners acquire a Firearm Owners Identification (FOID) card from the state before being allowed to buy a gun.
