LAWRENCE (AP) -- Police say a man shot in the head in Lawrence last weekend has died.

Authorities said Wednesday that 35-year-old Mark Trussell died at a Boston hospital after being shot in the back of the head at about 3 a.m. Sunday.

Police said he was not the intended target in the shooting, but caught in the crossfire of a shooting.

The investigation into his death is ongoing and there have been no arrests.

A friend tells The Eagle-Tribune (http://bit.ly/YDhzcV ) that Trussell was a father of four who worked a cook at a local restaurant.

Trussell’s slaying is the city’s fourth homicide of the month.
