Police: California man dies from gunshot wound 36 years after shooting
Police in California are probing the murder of a 62-year-old man who died Monday, some 36 years after he was shot in 1977.
Fox 40 reports that Walter Johnson, 62, was paralyzed by a shooting 36 years ago and ultimately died from medical complications resulting from the incident.
Sacramento police say Johnson was driving to his parents’ home on April 9, 1977, when three men blocked the roadway with their car on San Carlos Way. Johnson was shot in the upper body after a brief struggle, police said, and he was then robbed. The three suspects fled in their red or brown Ford Pinto and were never apprehended.
Since Johnson died from complications stemming from the shooting, his death is now considered a homicide.
Anyone with information about the 1977 shooting is asked to call Sacramento Crime Alert at (916) 443-4357.
