Fifth person dies from Greensboro murder-suicide

READ MORE:

GREENSBORO, NC (AP) -- The 15-year old girl shot by her boyfriend's mother in North Carolina has died, raising the death toll from a weekend shooting rampage to five.

Guilford County Sheriff BJ Barnes said that Makayla Leigh Woods died Wednesday afternoon.

Authorities say 36-year-old Mary Ann Holder killed herself after shooting her two sons and three other children. All but one of the children has died.

The sheriff's department says Holder's nephew remains on life support.

Holder also shot her married former lover when they met early Sunday. Randall Lamb was expected to recover after being shot in the shoulder.

Police say they have not yet established a definite motive in the case.

Sad and tragic

Id dare say the one left on life support likely isnt going to make it either the odds are getting worse by the day Im afraid adn could be due to a family either having unreasonable hope or just cant accept the fact that their loved one has little to no chance of recovery (BTW living on a vent in a vegatative state is no quality of life so if thats the reasoning quit being selfish!!) As for why the woman did it we likely will never know.. Possible pyschosis, did she have previous mental illness issues that were underlying even severe PMDD can set off pyschosis in some people (PMDD is extreme form of PMS and its not a joke it can be very very bad and has been linked to suicides as well as temporary pyschotic behavior)
