Tromaine Bell, wounded in shooting on South Side in 2001, dies of his injuries more than 15 years later

More than 15 years ago, Tromaine Bell was shot on the South Side. He died in February, and now, his death has been ruled a homicide.

Bell, 42, died at 6:32 p.m. Feb. 1 at Kindred Hospital, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

An autopsy did not immediately rule on his cause and manner of death, but has since found that he died of complications from a gunshot wound to the torso, and his death was ruled a homicide, according to the medical examiner’s office.

Bell, of southwest suburban Burbank, was shot on Oct. 27, 2001, in the 1100 block of West 51st Street, according to the medical examiner’s office.

Further details about the shooting weren’t immediately available.
