Syracuse Police reports that James Gifford has died from injuries he suffered after being attacked outside the 7-11 at South Avenue and Valley Drive last Saturday morning.

Gifford, who was 70, was allegedly beaten by 18-year-old Romeo Williams, who has been charged with assault in Gifford's attack. Police spokesman Sgt. Tom Connellan tells 570 WSYR that the department will consult with the Onondaga District Attorney's office to determine what further criminal charges Williams will face, now that his case is a homicide.
