Ivy was then taken to the Peoria County Jail.

The arrest stems from the early February shooting in the 2700 block of West Trewyn.

Officers first responded to the scene for a ShotSpotter alert of multiple rounds fired.

When they arrived on scene, they were informed of a victim inside of an apartment, where they gave aid to the victim until he was transported to an area hospital.

According to the PPD, the victim was shot inside a vehicle in a parking lot, when the suspect vehicle pulled into the parking lot and parked near the victim. Two individuals got out and opened fire on the victim, according to the PPD.

The other suspect in the incident, a 16-year-old male, was arrested days after the shooting on February 9 on several weapons charges and aggravated battery.

Police say the juvenile was taken to the Peoria County Juvenile Detention Center.
