Law enforcement works the scene after a shooting that was called in at 12:30 p.m. Thursday, June 15, 2017, at O'Neal Street about halfway between Cleveland Avenue and Blackford Street in Chattanooga, Tenn. Upon arrival, the Chattanooga Police Department found one male shot and was transported to a local hospital and determined to be in critical condition.

A man who was shot on the 100 block of O'Neal Street two weeks ago has died from his injuries, marking the city's 17th homicide this year.

Shandar Lamar Weaver, 39, was found by police around 12:30 p.m.on June 15. He was found with a gunshot wound and transported to a local hospital by EMS. Originally, he gave police the alias "Shalone Wingate," but his legal name is Weaver, according to police.

The victim had an extensive criminal record in Hamilton County and had previously been arrested on charges of aggravated assault, aggravated robbery and drug possession.

He was also the victim in another shooting in 2012 on the 500 block of Dodson Avenue, according to Times Free Press records. He and a 16-year-old boy were hit in the thigh and feet respectively as they tried to run for cover.

Chattanooga has seen four homicides in the last 10 days, beginning on June 20 with the double homicide of Thomas Holder, 20, and Rayshann Underwood, 17, who were found shot to death in the Highland Memorial Gardens Cemetery.

Then, a triple-shooting on the 100 block of Glenwood Drive on Monday left 20-year-old Dangelo Marshall dead in what police believe was a botched drug deal. A suspect has been arrested in Marshall's shooting, but there have been no arrests in connections to the homicides of Underwood, Holder or Weaver.
