A February 2010 shooting in Odenton has been ruled a homicide after the victim died in June, county police said Wednesday.

Michael Anthony Temple, then 24, was shot during an apparent home invasion in the 500 block of Williamsburg Lane around 8:50 p.m. Feb. 2, 2010.

He was rushed to Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore where he was treated. But the gunshot wound to the upper body left him a quadriplec and he had to use a wheelchair.

Police investigators discovered two masked suspects entered the residence where Temple lived and began to tie people up when an altercation started. Temple was shot and the suspects fled the scene.

On June 18, 2015, Temple was taken to Baltimore Washington Medical Center for a medical emergency and died later that day, police said. 

Maryland's Chief Medical Examiner performed an autopsy and after a lengthy investigation concluded Temple died of complications from the gunshot wound suffered in 2010 and ruled the case a homicide, police said. 

Police believe people with knowledge of the crime might be more inclined to discuss it due to the passage of time. County police urge anyone with information to contact Detective Jason DiPietro at 410-222-3415, the county police tip line at 310-222-4700 or Metro Crime Stoppers.
