GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — A 15-year old girl shot by her boyfriend's mother in North Carolina has died, raising the death toll from the weekend shooting spree to five.

Guilford County Sheriff BJ Barnes says Makayla Leigh Woods died Wednesday afternoon.

Authorities say 36-year-old Mary Ann Holder killed herself after shooting her two sons and three other children. All but one of the children has died.

The sheriff's department says Holder's nephew remains on life support.

Holder also shot her married former lover early Sunday. Randall Lamb was expected to recover from his shoulder wound.

Police say they have not yet established a definite motive in the case.

Holder did leave a note taking responsibility for the shootings.
