ST. LOUIS — A St. Louis woman critically wounded in a mass shooting in June has died from her injuries.

Police say 42-year-old Twona Parson died Wednesday, six weeks after she was among four people shot by Marlo Boyd, who fatally shot himself in the head after police arrived.

The shooting happened June 18 in an apartment. Police have not disclosed a motive but say the gunman and victims were connected.

Officers called to the scene found a 15-year-old girl and 39-year-old woman both critically injured. Officers then heard gunshots and a SWAT team was called in.

Once police were able to enter the apartment they found 18-year-old Deanna Williams and Boyd dead, and Parson critically injured.

Parson, Williams and Boyd all lived in the apartment.
