Charges Filed in Shooting of Big Al’s Bouncer

October 26, 2023, Peoria, IL – Today, a Peoria Man, Tywahnn K. Tillman, 35, was charged with Attempt First Degree Murder, two counts of Aggravated Battery with a Firearm, and Felon in Possession of a Weapon for a shooting that occurred early Monday morning at Big Al’s in downtown Peoria.  A warrant has been issued for Tillman’s arrest. 


The Peoria Police Department was called around 3 a.m. to Big Al’s on a report of an adult male shot. When officers arrived, they discovered the male who had been shot was a bouncer for the club.  Through surveillance video and witnesses it was discovered that Tillman had gotten into a fight with the bouncer and had been kicked out of the club.   Tillman then went to a car and retrieved a gun.  He walked back into the club and up to the bouncer, who had his back turned to Tillman, and shot the bouncer in the head.  The bullet passed through the bouncer and struck a second victim.   Tillman fled the scene on foot.


This investigation is ongoing. If anyone has information regarding this incident, please contact the Peoria Police Department at 309-673-4521.
