A 52-year-old man died Sunday, one day after he was shot during a home invasion in unincorporated northwest suburban McHenry.

Donald P. Jouravleff died from complications of a gunshot wound at Centegra Northern Illinois Medical Center in McHenry, according to the McHenry County coroner’s office.

Police found him shot and seriously wounded about 1 a.m. Saturday inside his home in the 1800 block of Davis Avenue, near the Illinois Route 176 Fox River Bridge, according to the McHenry County sheriff’s office.

A witness said they saw two males enter the home, shoot the man and steal cash, police said.

One attacker was described as a black male wearing a black do-rag, a neon green bandana over his face, a black hooded sweatshirt and tan shoes or boots. The other was a short, white male in dark clothes and a white mask, police said. They carried black handguns.

A dark-colored pickup and a dark-colored mid-size SUV, both with loud exhausts, were seen in the area around the time of the break-in, police said.

Police said the shooting is thought to be an isolated incident and do not believe thereis any threat to the public.

The death remains under investigation, with toxicology results pending, the coroner’s office said. The McHenry County Major Investigations Team is assisting.
