A man has died exactly four years after he was shot in the head.

Kevin Alston Jr., 25, was shot Nov. 30, 2011, on West Broadway Avenue in Minneapolis, according to the Hennepin County Medical Examiner's report that was released Saturday, and as a result of his injuries he was moved into a group home in Brooklyn Center, the Pioneer Press says.

Alston died Nov. 30, 2015, of "delayed infectious complications of quadriplegia attributed to a remote gunshot wound to the head," and the medical examiner has declared his death a homicide.

The Minneapolis Police Department continues to investigate the shooting, the report says. Minneapolis police spokesperson John Elder told the Star Tribune it remains unclear who shot Alston, and anyone with information is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

Alston's death marks the 50th homicide in Minneapolis in 2015, the paper notes.
