BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The death of a 28-year-old man in December 2017 from injuries he received in a 2008 shooting has been ruled as a homicide, raising the 2017 homicide total for Baltimore.

Troy Matthew Johnson Jr. died on Dec. 15, 2017. Police say Johnson had been shot several times in the back on April 22, 2008, leaving him in critical condition.

An autopsy was performed on Johnson, and his cause of death was ruled a homicide — linked to injuries he suffered in the 2008 shooting.

This raises Baltimore’s 2017 homicide total to 342. The tally was previously 343, but a double shooting in December was reclassified as a justified act.
