DWIGHT, lll. -- Police in Dwight have no arrests in the fatal shootings of a mother and daughter and the wounding of another person early Saturday morning.

The shooting happened at 200 West North Street in Dwight. Dwight is about an hour and a half Northeast of Peoria.

According to police 60-year-old Donna Denker and her daughter 30-year-old Kelli Denker were both shot inside their home early Saturday morning.

Joshua Bzdusek, who called police, was also shot.

Monday neighbors demonstrated their support by raising money for the family.

Linda Olsen tied teal and white colored ribbons around trees in front of homes on West North Street in Dwight.

"The neighbors just want to show support, so the teal and white represent shooting victims and we're just trying to heal. And it's gonna be a long process," she said.

About 4:30 Saturday morning Dwight Police received a call from Bzdusek about the shooting. When they arrived they found the mother and daughter dead from gunshots. Bzdusek was also lying on the floor with a gunshot wound. He was taken to a hospital and lifeflighted to another facility for surgery.

Neighbors say Kelli and her boyfriend Joshua both worked at a DQ Restaurant in Dwight. But the owners declined to talked about the case.

Residents say shooting don't happened often in their quiet community.

"It's scary, we're walking on egg shells at our own home. I have little kids and I wonder what this was all about," said Jen Corrigan.

Police are not saying much right now about the investigation. They are asking anyone with information about the shootings to call 815-844-0911.
