A 29-year-old man shot by police after allegedly opening fire at a Los Angeles Police Department station early this month, wounding an officer, died Thursday, officials said.

Daniel Christoph Yealu, who was charged with two counts of attempted murder of a peace officer, had been hospitalized in critical condition after being wounded when police returned fire in the April 7 attack.

LAPD Cmdr. Andy Smith confirmed Yealu's death. The cause of death was not immediately available.

A man suspected of shooting up a police station lobby and wounding an officer before being critically injured in a gunbattle had wanted to become a Los Angeles police officer and was rejected, authorities said Tuesday.
