The following is a statement from the Auglaize County Sheriff's Office:

Auglaize County Sheriff Al Solomon announced today one of the victims of the April 11 shooting has died as a result of the injuries he sustained in the assault.

Dexter Lee Turner, 47, died at 6:15 a.m. today in St. Rita's Medical Center, Solomon said.

Few details of the incident have been released since the shooting. A press release issued by the sheriff's office on April 12 said the incident took place at a condominium on the south side of Grand Lake St. Marys and involved a father and son, identified as Turner and his son, Alim Amir Turner, 25. Both were hospitalized after the shooting.

The Allen County Coroner's office will make arrangements for an autopsy, Solomon said.

Deputies and Detectives along with OHIO B.C.I. and I continue to investigate the incident.

"Now that the case is a homicide it doesn't really change the way we have been investigating the case," Solomon said. "It was a serious case to begin with and was being treated that way and now it has become even more serious."

No other details are being released at this time and the investigation continues.
