Ellicott City church shooting: Priest dies from gunshot wounds, police say
ELLICOTT CITY, Md. (AP) - Howard County police say a priest wounded when a gunman opened fire at her Ellicott City church has died.
Police announced Sunday that the Rev. Mary-Marguerite Kohn, co-rector of St. Peter's Episcopal Church, was pronounced dead at Shock Trauma on Saturday night. The church said earlier in the day 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.
