Md. Woman Shot In Head Is Near Death, Family Says

HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — The mother of a Hagerstown woman who was shot twice in the head last week says her daughter is near death.

Brenda Cole issued a statement Monday after a bond hearing for the man charged with shooting Heather Harris in her home.

Cole says her daughter’s life is declining and plans are being made to harvest her organs.

Police say Harris was shot Friday by her former boyfriend, Randy McPeak, 43, of Berkeley Springs, W.Va.

Harris had filed an application May 25 for a peace order in which she wrote that McPeak was stalking her and she feared for her life.

The court granted the peace order that day and extended it on June 3 for 30 days. It barred McPeak from contacting Harris or entering her home.
