The victim of a May shooting died Friday and additional charges are pending against the man accused of gunning him down.

Raul Castro Jr., 41, died Friday as a result of injuries he suffered in the May 16 shooting, Sgt. Pete Dugan, spokesman for the Tucson Police Department, said in a news release.

Officers found Castro Jr. just before 12:30 a.m. in the parking lot of the Famous Sam’s restaurant and bar, 2320 N. Silverbell Road near West Grant Road.

The suspect in the shooting, 51-year old Mark Walck, had fled the bar, but detectives tracked him down hours later and booked him into the Pima County jail for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, Dugan said.

Anyone with information about the shooting should call 911 or 88-CRIME.
