A 17-year-old boy is dead and another person injured after a shooting in Peoria. Peoria County Coroner Johnna Ingersoll says Treyshawn Blakely died at a local hospital after he was shot once in the head with a rifle. Police say another unidentified person was shot during the same incident and taken to a local hospital. Further information about that person is not available. No arrests have been made and no information was available about potential motives. Blakely was the second person in Peoria to die from gunfire the past few days. Kelsey Coleman, who was 32, was shot to death Friday in a home invasion. Police say one arrest has been made in that case.
