Man dies one month after a shooting

Police in Charlotte say a 42-year-old man has died from gunshot wounds, more than a month after a 70-year-old man shot him during a daylight break-in at a tool shed.

A police report says the man was shot three times the morning of December 12th.

The 70-year-old man told police that three men had broken into the tool shed at his home and stolen a leaf blower, tool box, table saw and other items.

He told police he confronted them as they got into a sport utility vehicle in his driveway, then shot at the driver with a handgun as they pulled away.

The suspects crashed the S-U-V about a mile away.

Two men were treated for injuries, but the third man never left Carolinas Medical Center, where he died on Monday. Authorities are trying to notify his family.
