Man shot in Burlington dies several days later

BURLINGTON, N.C. (AP) — A man shot and wounded in Burlington earlier this week has died at a Chapel Hill hospital.

Burlington police said in a news release that 21-year-old Kareem L. Johnson was shot several times Monday afternoon and died Wednesday at University of North Carolina Hospitals.

No arrests have been reported.

Police think as many as eight people were involved in a disturbance before Johnson was shot.

Police are investigating whether Johnson’s shooting is related to that of a man who was wounded several hours later.
