John Martin, 77, of Muskogee has died from gunshot wounds he received in a Sept. 15 shooting, according to the Muskogee Police Department.

Martin was in his house when a man entered the house around 8:10 a.m. on that date on Monta Avenue and demanded money. Martin told the man he had no money and the suspect shot him multiple times before Martin could reach his gun and fire back at the suspect, who then fled from the home.

Today, around 2:50 p.m., Martin died from his wounds.

The suspect is described as a black male, average build in his 30s, wearing a gray hoodie.
