PEORIA, Ill. — Two arrests have been made in connection to two people being stabbed and a gun being found on the dance floor at the Crusens on Farmington Road in West Peoria early Friday morning.

21-year-old Brody W. Jenkins was taken into custody in relation to a report of a loaded firearm on the dance floor around 11:45 p.m. Thursday.
Sheriff Asbell said detectives were made aware of a social media post which showed a man holding a handgun inside the bathroom in Crusens.
Jenkins was arrested for possession of a firearm, possession of a firearm without a valid foid card, and reckless conduct.
The Sheriff’s Office said the two incidents do not appear to be related.
