Police: Episcopal priest who was shot at Md. church has died; 2nd wounded woman died earlier
ELLICOTT CITY, Md. (AP) ' Police in Maryland say an Episcopal priest wounded when a gunman opened fire at her church has died.
Howard County Police announced Sunday that the Rev. Mary-Marguerite Kohn was pronounced dead at Shock Trauma on Saturday night. She was co-rector of St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Ellicott City. The church had said earlier that she was on life support to assist her family's intentions to donate her organs. Her body was taken to the medical examiner for autopsy.
Police say Douglas Jones, a homeless man, shot Kohn and church secretary, Brenda Brewington, on Thursday after he was turned away from the church's food bank. Jones then killed himself in the woods where he lived nearby. Brewington was pronounced dead at the scene.
The church planned a private service on Sunday.
