JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - A woman shot during a robbery this past week has died at the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson.

UMMC officials said 69-year-old Carolyn Temple died Monday.

Police say two armed men robbed and shot Temple last Wednesday as she was taking trash containers up a friend’s driveway in the Belhaven community of Jackson.

Authorities say Temple was attacked by two men who attempted to take her purse. When she resisted, they hit her in the head with the gun and then shot her.

Authorities say she suffered wounds to the hand and stomach.
