A 16-year-old Oklahoma girl has died five days after her mother allegedly fatally shot her and her older brother in the head.
Kloee Toliver was declared brain dead Monday and succumbed to her injuries Tuesday evening. A family spokesperson told Tulsa World that her organs will be donated to eight people.
The outlet reported that Kloee had been hospitalized since the November 1 shooting that killed her brother, Kayson Toliver, 18, as he slept in his bed. Their mother, Amy Leann Hall, 39, is accused of fatally shooting Kayson and then going to Kloee’s room and shooting her.
After shooting Kayson, Hall allegedly opened fire on her 14-year-old daughter who was sleeping in the same room, grazing her in the head and neck area. People reported that the wounded teen managed to flee to the bathroom and convince her mother to put the gun down.
“She kind of talked [Hall] down,” Okmulgee County sheriff’s investigator Duston Todd told the magazine, describing the shooting as a “spur-of-the-moment thing.”
“That is heroic to face somebody like that who tried to kill you.”
A friend who was staying over and sleeping in Kayson’s room reportedly called police at 6:30 a.m. Hall allegedly fled the scene after the shooting and led police on a high-speed chase for four miles that ended with her arrest.
Hall reportedly went on to tell investigators that she shot her children to protect them from her estranged husband, who she claimed was abusive. She said she planned to kill all her children but the youngest “interrupted her plans,” according to Tulsa World.
The family told KTUL that the 14-year-old was released from the hospital on Thursday.
On November 2, Hall was charged with first-degree murder and two counts of shooting with intent. People reported that she was charged with an additional count of first-degree murder following Kloee’s death.
Hall is being held without bond. A court date is scheduled for November 29.
