Graffiti was reportedly left at the scene of a shooting on East Republic Street in Peoria.

The graffiti read “R.I.P. Duey,” the nickname of Peoria’s most recent homicide victim, Aubrae Harper, 17. News partner 25 News reports the graffiti was discovered outside a home on East Republic Street after neighbors say they heard 23 gunshots.

Police think multiple shooters were involved based on a shotspotter alert.

A man in a white shirt and dread-locks was seen running down the street after the shooting.

Police think the graffiti left at the scene was anti-Mo-Block, a known gang in the area.

The shooting came two days after a drive-by shooting at Harper’s memorial service in the 900 block of Republic.

Police didn’t find anyone with injuries. They have no suspects at this point.
