A man has died days after being shot on a motorcycle on the border of Austin and West Humboldt Park on the West Side.

Clifton Williamson, 40, was shot multiple times around 3:20 p.m. June 13 in the 1300 block of North Cicero Avenue, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

He was riding a motorcycle when someone in another vehicle fired shots, striking him in the back and legs, Chicago police said. He was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in critical condition.

Williamson, of Austin, died 11 days later on June 24 from complications of the gunshot wounds, the medical examiner’s office said.

Police reported no arrest.

Williamson is at least the fifth recorded homicide on the weekend he was shot. Four other people were killed and 42 others wounded in shootings during that weekend.
