A man seriously injured in a shooting late last month has died.

His injuries at the time were described as life-threatening and police say he died in hospital earlier today.

They say an autopsy is scheduled to determine the cause of death.

The 31-year-old's identity will not be released until that has been determined and until his family has been notified.
