PARK MANOR — Almost a year after a deadly shooting outside a South Side funeral made national headlines and spurred police to crack down on "gang funerals," a second man has died from the shooting, officials said.
Deonte Ousley, 27, was pronounced dead 6:05 a.m. Wednesday, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office.
Ousley and Miller were both taken to Stroger Hospital in "extremely critical" condition, authorities said at the time. Miller died from his wounds that day.
Ousley, of the 5900 block of South Damen Avenue, survived until he died Wednesday at a North Side health-care facility.
As of Thursday morning, no one was in custody in connection with the shooting, said Officer Jose Estrada, a police spokesman.
Ousley and Miller were attending a funeral for James Holman, who police described as known gang member. As the two men left the church about 12:20 p.m., a gunman approached and opened fire, hitting both Ousley and Miller in their torsos, Estrada said.
After the shooting, as yellow tags marking shell casings littered the steps in front of the church, witnesses recalled hearing four or five shots before panic broke out at the church.
Both Ousley and Miller had "extensive" criminal histories and were documented members of the Gangster Disciples, according to a police source.
