A man who was wounded in a double shooting earlier this month in Brighton Park has died from his injuries.

Adrian Ramirez Perez, 41, was pronounced dead at 8:11 p.m. Thursday at Mount Sinai Hospital, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

He was shot July 8 when someone opened fire from a silver-colored sedan about 3 a.m. in the 4000 block of South Kedzie Avenue, Chicago police said.

Perez and Salvador Ramirez, 38, were sitting in a vehicle at the time and were both struck multiple times, officials said. Ramirez died hours later at Mount Sinai.

Autopsy results released Friday found Perez died of complications from his gunshot wounds and ruled his death a homicide, the medical examiner’s office said.
