NORMAL — Police on Monday said the victim in a weekend shooting on Normal's north side is battling life-threatening injuries. 

Police were dispatched at about midnight Sunday to the first block of Traders Circle for reports of several gunshots. The area, which is one block north of West Raab Road, consists of apartment and hotel buildings.

A man in his 20s was found with several gunshot wounds and taken to Carle BroMenn Medical Center, where he was being treated Monday. 

Police Assistant Chief Steve Petrilli said the man, who he did not identify, is presumed to be not from the Bloomington-Normal area. No arrests have been made and Petrilli said police have no suspect information.

From 2015 to 2016, murder and non-negligent manslaughter rates in the United States went up 8.4%, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Here is a look at the cities with the highest murder rates in the country.
