PEORIA —

A Peoria County grand jury on Tuesday indicted a South Peoria man for allegedly shooting another man in the head during a feud between their families last month.

Tyrone T. Hopkins, 32, of 1529 S. Faraday St. faces two counts of first-degree murder and one count of possession of a weapon by a felon in connection with the shooting of Lonnie Williams, who died March 30.

Williams, 27, of Peoria was attempting to stop a fight between members of his family and those of Hopkins in the street outside 2113 W. Starr St. when he was shot, allegedly by Hopkins.

A friend of Williams, John Thomas, was shot once in the chest and also suffered a grazing shot to the neck. His injuries were not life-threatening.

Hopkins remains in custody at the Peoria County Jail on $1.5 million bond. He is to be arraigned Thursday before Circuit Judge Michael Brandt.
