A Peoria man is the city’s 12th homicide victim of the year.
Peoria police officers responded to the Harrison Homes about 10:45 p.m. Sunday after receiving a ShotSpotter alert of multiple rounds fired.
Police found 34-year-old Bronzell Howard with multiple gunshot wounds. He was taken to OSF Saint Francis Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead just before 11:30 p.m.
Peoria County Coroner Jamie Harwood said Howard died of traumatic and rapid blood loss caused by the gunshot wounds. He did not believe the shots were fired at close range.
