OKLAHOMA CITY - A crime that took place three years ago is making headlines once again.

A man who was wounded from a shooting in 2005 has died. The medical examiner's office has ruled this metro man's death a homicide after complications from a gunshot wound.

On March 5, 2005 Oklahoma City police were called out to a southwest Oklahoma City neighborhood and found Floy Gibson.

Police said two men approached Gibson, demanding money and when he refused they shot him inside his car.

Paramedics pulled Gibson out and he was taken to a local hospital. For years after, he faced health complications.

"He survived those injuries; for the last three and a half years he's been in some type of long term care center because of injuries he received from that shooting," Oklahoma City Police Department Capt. Steve McCool said.

Gibson died from the gunshot wound Wednesday and the Oklahoma City Medical Examiner's office has ruled the death a homicide.

Three years later, investigators say they have still made no arrest and they're still looking for those responsible for this case.

"Right now investigators are going to look into why he could have possibly been in that area, what he was doing," McCool said. "We're going to try to establish and find out some more information."

Police said the suspect's description is very vague but that two men may have been involved in the shooting.
