Gunshot victim dies days after being hospitalized, police say


GARY – A 59-year-old man died late Sunday at a local hospital, several days after he was shot in the city's Brunswick section, police said.

Terrence Turner Sr., who has addresses in Gary and Milwaukee, was a passenger in a vehicle that was traveling east on Fifth Avenue when he was shot, according to police and the Lake County coroner's office.

The driver of the vehicle in which Turner was riding tried to merge into another lane, where a black SUV was driving, Gary police Lt. Dawn Westerfield said.
