A 64-year-old man died months after he was wounded in a shooting in Roseland on the South Side.

Jerry McGhee died Sunday after he was shot in the head months earlier in the 10500 block of South Perry Avenue, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

On June 19, McGhee and a 58-year-old man were in a domestic altercation when someone opened fire, Chicago police said. The other man was taken to the same hospital with a gunshot wound to his shoulder and his condition was stabilized.

An autopsy report released Monday said McGhee died of complications from a gunshot wound and ruled his death a homicide.
