A man died six days after he was shot in the South Side Englewood neighborhood, authorities said.

Lee Stemley, 26, was standing on the sidewalk with another male at 5:42 p.m. Sept. 16 in the 5900 block of South Union when the male heard gunshots and dropped to the ground, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office. When he got up, he saw Stemley was shot.

Stemley, who lived in the 6300 block of South King Drive, was taken to Stroger Hospital with a gunshot wound to the head, authorities said. He was pronounced dead at 6:18 p.m. Thursday.

No one was in custody early Monday as Area South detectives conduct a homicide investigation, police said.
