Peoria Police Officers Cleared in El Shooting

Jul 6, 2018

Peoria County State’s Attorney Jerry Brady has cleared Peoria Police officers of any wrongdoing in the February 1st shooting of Daniel El.

More than 60 children aged 15 or younger have been shot in Chicago this year.

Operation CeaseFire deploys former gang members and felons to intervene in feuds that too often end in fatal gunfire.

The Peoria Police Department is testing its Shot-Spotter technology in the East Bluff and Near North End Wednesday evening.  That requires police to discharge firearms in those areas starting around 8pm.  The tests will last about half-an-hour.  Police will notify residents when the tests begin and end in their areas.
