Man dies 3 months after West Englewood shooting

A man died Saturday morning, more than three months after he was shot near his West Englewood home on the South Side.

About 4:45 p.m. Feb. 16, 33-year-old Kristopher Claybon was sitting in a parked vehicle with a man, 37, outside his home in the 5700 block of South Hermitage when another vehicle drove by and someone inside opened fire, according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Claybon was shot in the right abdomen, right elbow, left arm, right finger and suffered a graze wound to the face, police said. He was initially taken to Stroger Hospital.

On Saturday, Claybon was pronounced dead at home at 8:21 a.m., according to the medical examiner’s office.

An autopsy Sunday revealed he died of a blood clot and immobility due to the multiple gunshot wounds, the medical examiner’s office said. Sepsis, or a complication of an infection, was listed as a secondary cause of death, which was ruled a homicide.

The 37-year-old man who was sitting in the vehicle with Claybon was shot in the right shoulder and was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, police said.

No one has been charged in connection with the shooting as Area South detectives investigate.
