Tyler police say the victim in a Sunday shooting at a shopping center has died.

Bradley Brockman, 45, died Wednesday night as a result of the gunshot wound, according to Tyler Police Department.

“Brockman has been listed in critical condition since Sunday, Dec. 16 when he was shot at the Westwood Shopping Center located at S SW Loop 323 and Chandler Highway,” TPD said in a statement.

The suspect, Kristian Perdomo, was arrested shortly after fleeing the scene.

His original charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon has been upgraded to homicide. Perdomo also is charged with unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon.

Tyler police said Tuesday that they and the Smith County Sheriff’s Office have received evidence linking the same gun used in the incident to five recent shootings in the city and county.
