A Joliet man has died of complications from a gunshot wound he suffered about 25 years ago, an autopsy Saturday found.

Albert D. Hale, 41, was pronounced dead early Aug. 14 at the University of Chicago Medical Center, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office, which ruled his death a homicide, saying it was the result of complications from the gunshot wound to his spine.

The circumstance of the shooting, including where it happened, weren’t clear Saturday. Family members told investigators it happened about 25 years ago but did not know exactly when or where, a spokesman for the medical examiner’s office said.
