UPDATE: autopsy findings on Everett revealed that he suffered a single gunshot wound to the left pelvic area of his body. He also suffered sever hemorrhaging and blood loss. The pelvic region is very vascular with large vessels, and heavy amounts of bleeding most often occurs from these types of wounds. Toxicology is pending, however, likely will not change the cause of death.
This death is being investigated as a homicide by the Peoria Police Department.
A man shot over the weekend in Peoria's North Valley has died of his injuries.
Peoria County Coroner Jamie Harwood said Peoria police were dispatched to the 200 block of Green Street on a ShotSpotter alert around 2:30 a.m. Sunday. Twenty-two-year-old Malik Everett was found in the 600 block of NE Washington with a gunshot wound, and was taken to OSF Saint Francis in critical condition.
Everett was pronounced dead of his injuries on June 6 just before 2:15 p.m. at the hospital. An autopsy is set for today.
