PEORIA, Ill. (WEEK) -- -


Peoria police say a stolen car report led to that bizarre incident at the hospital Wednesday night.

Exclusive video received by 25 News shows three people leaving a car at gunpoint in the roundabout of OSF St. Francis Medical Center.

During the brief encounter, no shots were fired.

Reporters on-scene and the video show a total of three people get out of the vehicle in question. All were instructed to move backwards to the police line with their hands up.

Police tell 25 News they pulled the car over because it matched the description of a vehicle that had previously been reported stolen.


The stop just happened to be in the hospital's roundabout.

Police ended up charging the driver of the grey sedan with filing a false police report in connection with that supposedly stolen vehicle.

Additionally, one of the passengers in the car was arrested but on an unrelated warrant.
