What is the name of this shrub and why is it dying?

I have a shrub that seems to be on its last leg. Not sure why it is dying but it is looking really bad. This is in my front yard, behind some azaleas, next to the front stoop. I've never seen it bloom. It gets a fair amount of morning light - I'd guess about 6 hours, but there are a few huge oak trees that shade much of my front yard in the summer. Anyone know what it is and if I can do anything to save it? I haven't noticed any bugs but it has had holes in the leaves for the last year. It seemed to bounce back last fall, but over the winter, it just started dying.

Here is a close up. Maybe you can see some of the holes in some of the leaves. But, like I said, it seemed to be coming back.
