November 14, 2023, Peoria, IL – A Peoria man, Donte Agnew, 21, was charged over the weekend with First Degree Murder, a Class M Felony, for shooting and killing Davion Parker, 18, on February 11, 2023, at the Lexington Hills Apartment Complex. Today, the State’s motion to deny pre-trial release was granted. Agnew will remain in custody at the Peoria County Jail while awaiting trial.
Around 7 pm on February 11, Peoria Police were called to the 3400 block of W. Oakbrook Dr. on a report of shots fired. Upon arrival, officers found Parker in the front passenger seat of a minivan with a gunshot wound to his head. Peoria Police detectives obtained surveillance video from the night of the shooting.
