SHARE Man dies following domestic shooting in Calumet City

A Far South Side man died Thursday, nearly three months after he was shot by a relative during a domestic argument in south suburban Calumet City.

Elkhadar L. El, 59, was shot just before 7 a.m. Oct. 27, 2014, in a home in the 400 block of Buffalo Avenue in Calumet City, according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

A male relative shot him during a domestic-related incident, but El initially declined to press aggravated battery charges, Calumet City Police Chief Edward Dilmore said.

El, of the 10100 block of South Calumet, was pronounced dead Wednesday at 1:25 p.m. at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, the medical examiner’s office said. An autopsy showed he died of complications from a shotgun wound to the torso, and ruled the death a homicide.

It was not immediately clear Thursday whether authorities would pursue criminal charges following his death.
