Bartonville (WEEK) - Bartonville Police are investigating a shoot-out on a roadway that took place early Friday morning.

Police said around 1:40 AM a Bartonville Officer was sitting in the 900 block of McKinley Ave when they saw three cars, traveling northbound, with the occupants actively shooting at eachother.

The officer then pursued the vehicles and got license plate information on all three cars.

The officer began to follow one of the vehicles but when they started to flee at a high rate of speed the officer did not persue and retured to the shooting scene.

At the scene there was multiple shell casings on the street and two unoccupied vehicles were hit by bullets.

A short time later Peoria Police located two of the vehicles involved in the incident and processed them for evidence.

The investigation is still on going.
