An 8-year-old has died after receiving a gunshot wound to the head last week.

Officers said Jamarion Broom Cox was riding in the back seat of his uncle's car when he was shot at about 5:30 p.m. last Thursday.

The shooting happened while the car was driving eastbound on Roswell Drive. The boy was taken to Nationwide Children’s Hospital in critical condition.

Detectives say the boy's uncle - 23-year-old Robert L. Broom - is still at large.  First-degree murder charges have been filed against him in the wake of the child's death.
