ST. LOUIS (AP) — Authorities say a 46-year-old has died about three months after walking to a Missouri police station with a gunshot wound.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Frederick Owens, of Ferguson, died last week, triggering a homicide investigation into his shooting. Police say he stumbled into a police station on Aug. 24 with a gunshot wound to his torso. He told police he was at an intersection 1 mile (1.61 kilometer) away when he got into an argument with a 47-year-old man, who shot him.

Police haven’t released whether anyone is in custody.
