PEORIA, Ill. — The men allegedly involved in a deadly shooting near a nightclub in Peoria earlier this month were indicted Tuesday on murder charges.
Both Desmond N. Sanders, 29, and Tyrese T. Walker, 20, were indicted on one count of first-degree murder in the shooting death of 24-year-old Peoria man Patrick Moton in an alley near Dream Night Club on SW Washington St.
Police responded in the early hours of Dec. 13 on a report of people shooting at each other. Moton’s death marked the 24th homicide of the year.
Autopsy results show Moton suffered a gunshot wound to the head, and multiple gunshot wounds throughout his torso and extremities. He likely died instantly, Peoria County Coroner Jamie Harwood said.
A $1 million bond was set for both Sanders and Walker.
Sanders is scheduled to appear in court again on Thursday.
