BALTIMORE (AP) - Baltimore police say a man shot in the head in 2011 has died of his injuries.
 
The department said in a news release that Bernell Perkins was driving in northwest Baltimore on April 17, 2011, when he was shot in the head.
 
Investigators say Perkins was unable to identify the shooter, and no one was charged in the crime.
 
Police say Perkins died on Sept. 27, and say the medical examiner told the department on Wednesday that Perkins' death was a homicide, and that it was due to complications from the shooting in 2011.
 
Police say anyone with information about the shooting contact them.
