MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

One of the victims who was shot on the patio of Westy’s in 2016 has died.

Family and friends of Josh Walton, who was shot during a crime spree in downtown Memphis off Beale Street over a year ago, confirmed he passed away.

Walton had recently taken a turn for the worse after being badly injured in that spree that injured two others and killed MPD Officer Verdell Smith.

The suspect, Justin Welch, already faces a slew of charges including first-degree murder.

Police have not said yet if Walton's death will upgrade any of the charges.
