Peoria Police are investigating the city's 13th homicide of the year.
Police say the fatal shooting happened just before 7 AM Saturday.

The Peoria County Coroner says 23 year-old Brandon Grant died from a single gunshot to the abdomen. His autopsy was conducted Saturday afternoon.

Grant was found lying in the back seat of a vehicle at 1819 North Lehman Road at about 6:45. He was taken to OSF St. Francis Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at 7:30.

What police don't know is whether he was shot in the car or transported there after being shot at another location.

Police say they have identified a suspect in connection with the shooting but have not yet located him.

If you have any information, you're urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 673-9000.
