EAST PEORIA, Ill. (AP) – Three people are dead after a gunman shot two people at an East Peoria sports bar before he was shot and killed by an off-duty officer.

The gunman allegedly walked into The Fifth Quarter bar Saturday night and shot two people who were at a high school reunion before he was shot and killed by the officer.

The victims were 33-year-old Lori Moore of Morton and a 36-year-old Lance Griffel of Peoria. Peoria County Coroner Johnna Ingersoll says both were shot in the head.

Police haven’t identified the gunman.
