A 22-year-old man died two days after being shot in the head Thursday afternoon in the South Side Bronzeville neighborhood.

Derrick Weasley and a 28-year-old man were shot about 2:25 p.m. in the 4700 block of South Vincennes, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office.
