58-year-old Joseph Campbell died more than a year after being shot in Auburn Gresham

Joseph Campbell was shot in March 2016 in the South Side Auburn Gresham neighborhood. More than a year later, the 58-year-old died last week of injuries suffered in the shooting.

Campbell was shot in the face about 8:40 a.m. on March 8, 2016, in the 8200 block of South Emerald, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office. He was taken to Stroger Hospital after the shooting.

Campbell, a West Englewood resident, died at 4:39 a.m. July 22 at the Oak Lawn Respiratory and Rehabilitation Center, according to the medical examiner’s office.

An autopsy Friday found he died of complications from the gunshot wound, and his death was ruled a homicide.

Police said Friday that no arrests have been made in the case.
