A woman shot by her brother in Bovina May 15 has succumbed to her injuries.
Heather Blakley Hearn, 42, was taken off life support at the request of her family Thursday, June 18, more than a month after younger brother, Brian Greer, 40, shot her three times, once in the head and twice in the upper body.
The shooting occurred at the Clear Creek Campground behind Bovina Grocery in Warren County.
Greer took his sister’s 2006 Pontiac G-6 after shooting her and drove to their grandmother’s house and told her what had happened. The grandmother called E-911 to report the shooting.
When sheriff’s deputies located Hearn, she was communicating. She walked to an ambulance under her own power and was transported to the University of Mississippi Medical Center.
Yazoo County authorities captured Greer the following day just north of the Yazoo-Warren county line after witnesses reported a man with a weapon walking on State Highway 3 near a cornfield.
He was charged with attempted murder and being a felon in possession of a weapon and was denied bail.
Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace says investigators will be conferring with the district attorney Monday before seeking to upgrade the charges against Greer.
