A 42-year-old man who was shot nearly two weeks ago in the South Side Auburn Gresham neighborhood died of his wounds Sunday.

Marteace Tiffith was in his vehicle in the 8800 block of South Wood Street around 6:45 p.m. on March 8 when a black SUV pulled up beside him and someone inside fired shots, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Tiffith was shot in the head, arm and shoulder and taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, authorities said. He was pronounced dead at the hospital at 1:35 p.m. Sunday.

An autopsy found he died of complications of multiple gunshot wounds and his death was ruled a homicide.
