PEORIA (25 News Now) - Dozens of gunshots were reported at two locations Wednesday night on Peoria’s south side, leaving one person wounded and police looking for several suspects.

Just 9:15 p.m., police said a pair of ShotSpotter alerts indicated 35 shots fired in the 1900 block of West Lincoln Avenue. That was followed by a third ShotSpotter alert indicating 10 more rounds fired nearby in the 1900 block of West Howett Street.

Shortly after that, police said a man arrived at a local hospital with a non-life threatening gunshot wound to the leg. He told police he was on West Lincoln when several masked suspects approached from different directions and started shooting. All ran away, according to police.

The police department is investigating.
