A 67-year-old man who police say was shot by his son last week has died.

Edward W. Pull died Monday at a local hospital, according to police.

Pull's son, Edward James Pull, 32, is being held on $2 million after pleading not guilty to charges including attempted murder and kidnapping.

He's next due in court Thursday, and the charges against him could change in light of his father's death.

Assistant District Attorney Scott Spielman said prosecutors will first have to confirm the father died as a result of injuries suffered during the incident before pursuing a murder charge. 

Police said they were dispatched to the Pull residence in the 6000 block of Phyllis Street at 3:54 a.m. Dec. 11 and found the older Pull suffering from gunshot wounds to his abdomen and left leg. His 65-year-old wife had a cut to her head.

According to investigators, Edward James Pull became involved in an argument with his parents and shot his father then assaulted his mother. He held them against their will before calling police. 

A gun was found at the scene.
