Now her boyfriend has been arrested, KSAT reported.
The Bexar County Sheriff’s Office was called to a home at about 11:50 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 24, according to a news release. The deputies found a front door was open, and they heard someone with difficulty breathing.
They entered the home and found the woman was shot in her head, authorities said. She was taken to a hospital in critical condition, and officials said she was “fighting for her life.”
The woman was pronounced dead at 6:02 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 27, authorities said.
The sheriff’s office identified Paris Shaw, 24, as a suspect in the shooting and asked the public for help finding him, according to a news release.
