PITTSBURGH (AP) — The death of a Pittsburgh man more than two decades after he was shot has been ruled a homicide.
The Allegheny County medical examiner's office attributed Thursday's death of 41-year-old Robert Minor to conditions stemming from the 1995 gunshot wound.
County spokeswoman Amie Downs told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on Monday that Minor died of complications related to having been bed-ridden stemming from paralysis.
He was 19 when he was shot in the back in September 1995. Another man was shot in the thigh. Police said then they had no motive or suspects and the victims weren't talking.
Minor told the Post-Gazette in 2013 that he was a paraplegic. He was interviewed because his son was one of four youths wounded in an ambush-style attack outside a high school.
