The 4-year-old child who was receiving treatment at the Karapitiya Teaching Hospital after sustaining critical gunshot injuries in Yakkalamulla, has passed away.
Three individuals who arrived on a motorbike had opened fire at a residence on the 19th of October.
A 34-year-old died on the spot while a 30-year-old individual and his 4-year-old son, who was also in the vicinity, sustained injuries in the shooting.
The 30-year-old individual is currently being treated at the Matara Hospital.
The shooting was carried out with a T-56 firearm while the suspects had stolen a motorcycle to commit the crime and had subsequently fled the area.
The murder was a result of a long-standing dispute between two groups in Uragasmanhandiya.
