A 27-year-old man who was wounded in a shooting earlier this month in Bridgeport has died from his injuries.

Denzel Robinson was pronounced dead at 4:34 p.m. May 20 at Stroger Hospital, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

He was shot at a gas station May 7 in the 600 block of West 31st Street, Chicago police said.

Robinson was in his vehicle in the parking lot of the station about 10 p.m. when a male approached and fired shots, striking him in the face and neck, officials said.

Autopsy results released Sunday ruled his death a homicide, saying he died from a gunshot wound to the head, the medical examiner’s office said.

Jabari Johnson, 27, was arrested May 20 and charged with first-degree murder in connection with the shooting, police said.

He was being held without bail at the Cook County Jail, according to the sheriff’s office.
