2nd woman shot at Maryland church on life support

Church says priest shot at Maryland Episcopal parish now on life support to donate her organs By The Associated Press

ELLICOTT CITY, Md. (AP) ' A Maryland Episcopal church where a disgruntled gunman opened fire says a priest who was critically wounded remains in critical condition but is not expected to survive.

St. Peter's Episcopal Church released a statement Saturday saying the Rev. Mary-Marguerite Kohn, co-rector of the parish, is on life support to assist her family's intentions to donate her organs.

Parish Warden Craig Stuart-Paul says the 62-year-old Kohn never turned away a person in need. He says even in death, she is giving life through her organs.

Brenda Brewington, a church secretary, also was fatally shot Friday. Police say a disgruntled homeless man shot the women after he was turned away from the church's food bank and became angry. Douglas F. Jones then killed himself in the woods where he lived nearby.
