Associated Press

PORTLAND – A woman who police say was shot by her 92-year-old father more than a week ago has died.

According to authorities, 43-year-old Kim Macintosh was shot in the head by her father, John Wesley Myers, in southeast Portland on Jan. 16. She died Thursday at a Portland hospital.

Detective Mary Wheat of the Portland Police Bureau said Myers was taken into custody last week and will be charged with aggravated murder in his daughter’s death.

Myers also shot his 49-year-old son, Mark Myers, in the chest during the confrontation.

According to a hospital spokeswoman at Oregon Health & Science University, Mark Myers was in fair condition Friday.

John W. Myers has been described as suffering from dementia.
