Shot in July, man dies in March

The death of a man who died months after being shot last July has been ruled a homicide, the D.C. police said.

They said Pernell Lonnie Dawkins, 43, of Southeast Washington was shot in the 300 block of Ridge Road SE on July 17. The shooting left him paralyzed and he was taken to a rehabilitation cetner in Maryland, where he died March 14.

Police said his death was ruled a homicide Monday after an autopsy was conducted by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore.
