A 16-year-old girl from Oklahoma who was shot in the head as she slept, allegedly by her own mother, has died of her injuries, less than a week after the shooting.
Kloee Toliver was shot in the head Nov. 1 at her family home in Nuyaka. Her brother, 18-year-old Kayson Toliver was also fatally shot in the head as he slept. Their mother, 39-year-old Amy Hall is in custody for their deaths, according to Tulsa World.
It could have been three victims, but Hall's 14-year-old daughter was able to wrestle the gun away from her after a bullet grazed her, police said. That teen, whose name hasn’t been disclosed, was treated for injuries at a hospital and later released, according to KTUL in Tulsa.
Hall allegedly admitted to police to shooting her children and said her youngest daughter "interrupted the plan, according to an affidavit cited by Tulsa World.
Hall allegedly told police she wanted to save her children from their abusive father and had intended to kill herself after their deaths. After her 14-year-old daughter took her gun, she fled the scene and was apprehended soon after, according to police.
Kloee Toliver died on Tuesday night after being on life support since the shooting. However, in death, she is being credited for saving eight others through the donation of her organs, KTUL reports.
Hall has been charged with one count of first-degree murder for the death of Kayson Toliver. Police said previously they would charge Hall with another first-degree murder charge when Kloee Toliver is removed from life support.
It’s not clear if Hall has a lawyer who can speak on her behalf at this time. She is being held without bond.
