BarShootingAn off-duty FBI agent shot and killed a man who opened fire in a bar in East Peoria.

It happened Saturday night.

The Fifth Quarter bar was filled with people attending a high school reunion.

Police say that’s when 40-year-old Jason Moore walked in and shot and killed his ex-wife and her boyfriend.

The FBI agent was inside the bar and shot Moore.

Police say it could have been a lot worse if the agent didn’t intervene so quickly.

State officials and East Peoria police are now investigating the incident.
