 We have just received confirmation from Jackson police that 69-year-old Carolyn Temple, the victim of last week's shooting in Belhaven, has died.

Last Wednesday, two armed men robbed and shot her as she was taking trash containers up a friend's driveway.

As of Sunday, Temple had undergone two surgeries to repair the damage from a bullet that went through her hand and into her abdomen.

We were told that the bullet was lodged in a canal between her L1 and L2 vertebra.

On Saturday morning, Jackson police caught a break in the case when a woman running in the Mississippi Blues Marathon spotted Temple's purse on Frontage Road near St. Dominic Hospital.

Now, JPD is analyzing that purse for prints, hoping to find a clue that will lead them to an arrest.

We will bring you more information as soon as we can.
