Peoria Police Chief Steve Settingsgaard wouldn't be shocked if the last 2 homicides are gang related.
The Chief says both happened within 2 blocks of each other on the southside. And they happened within 2 days of each other.
Settingsgaard says 3 gangs are being targeted by investigators. These groups are Zone 4, 4 Corner Hustlers and P-Stones.
Chief Settingsgaard says the Don't Shoot strategy is being implemented.
He says between 50 and 100 members of these groups with possible varying degrees of involvement, are being sought.
The Chief promises actions by law enforcement and prosecutors will be swift and severe under the rules of the Don't Shoot campaign.
