PEORIA – Police believe a man shot in his home was hit by stray bullet from another attack.

Peoria police responded to shots fired at 322 East Archer Avenue, where officers said a bullet came through the house, grazing a man's forehead. The man wasn’t severely injured and did not go to the hospital.

Around the same time a Pizza Hut Delivery man was gunned down on the 2400 block of North Missouri Street.

The officers who investigated both events say the incidents on Missouri and Archer are related because the house on Archer was in the direct line of fire.

The incident remains under investigation.
