PEORIA, Ill -- Peoria County Coroner Johnna Ingersoll said an autopsy Saturday showed Carnell Ashford suffered from multiple gunshot wounds, but died from a fatal shot to the chest.

Ashford was found dead Friday in the backyard of 1404 North East Perry Avenue.

His body was found near the scene of a early Friday morning shooting in the 1400 block of North East Monroe.
