The Montgomery Police Department says it is investigating the city's 19th homicide of 2013 after a 30-year-old man died from wounds he received in an April 5 shooting.

The victim, unidentified, was pronounced dead on April 12 at Baptist Medical Center South, where he had been receiving treatment since the shooting incident.
