KELSO, Wash. (AP) — Authorities say a man shot by an unknown intruder in his southwestern Washington home on Nov. 12 has died.

The Daily News reports 69-year-old Rick Huckaby of Kelso died Friday evening, according to the Cowlitz County Sheriff’s Office.

The sheriff’s office says Huckaby had been receiving treatment since the shooting.

According to the sheriff’s office, a male entered Huckaby’s house from a back door and shot him. Huckaby’s wife was at home at the time.

Chief Criminal Deputy Troy Brightbill said this week that to avoid compromising the investigation he wouldn’t say whether detectives have identified a suspect or a motive for the shooting. No arrests have been made.
