A Peabody resident who was shot in Lynn on Tuesday died in the hospital Wednesday, according to Essex County District Attorney Jonathan Blodgett’s spokesman, Steve O'Connell.

Ralph N. Iocco was shot outside an apartment building just before 2 p.m. on Tuesday before he was transported to Salem Hospital and later med-flighted to Massachusetts General Hospital, where he died at 6:50 p.m. on Wednesday, according to O’Connell. 

O'Connell said results from an autopsy slated to be performed yesterday are still not known.  

“Police are continuing to interview witnesses and follow leads,” O’Connell said via email. “Lynn Police are asking anyone with information about the case to contact them.”
