A man has died days after being wounded in a mass shooting last week in Bronzeville on the South Side.

Michael Sutton Jr., 31, was pronounced dead Tuesday, four days after a shooting that wounded four other people, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office.

An autopsy on his cause of death hasn’t been released.
