PEORIA, Ill.-- A total of four people have now been arrested in connection with a shooting in Peoria Thursday that left one man in critical condition.

One of those four is also a victim of a separate shooting that occurred hours beforehand.

Friday, police arrested 21 year-old Juan Nesbit. He's accused of shooting Jason Lindsey in the head around 6 PM the day before, outside the city's Hedge Hill Apartment complex. Lindsey remains in critical condition at OSF St. Francis Medical Center.

Police arrested three more people Saturday in connection with that same shooting: 28 year-old Andre Ewing, 21 year-old Aaron Frazier, and 21 year-old Tonica Fullilove, all of Peoria.

Ewing was taken into custody at OSF where, police say, he was being treated for a gunshot wound to his arm, an injury he sustained on Thursday in a separate incident.

All four are being held in Peoria county jail Sunday charged attempted murder, and other counts. Juan Nesbit's bond was set Saturday at $500,000. All four are also due in criminal court Tuesday.
