A 27-year-old woman gunned down by her 25-year-old boyfriend, who then turned the gun on himself in Worcester, has died, sources told MassLive.
The shooting took place early August 17, police previously said. The boyfriend was pronounced dead at the scene and the woman was taken to hospital and in critical condition.
Sources confirmed to MassLive on Tuesday that Megan McNeil, the victim of the Huntington Avenue shooting, is dead. The shooter, sources said, was Trey Mahone.
The police department did not publicly identify the shooter on Tuesday.
McNeil, a registered nurse who grew up in Grafton, leaves “the shining light of her life, her daughter Ayla Ansah” and other family members, according to a obituary.
“Nursing for Megan was by no means just a job; that was his vocation, ”we read in the obituary. “She helped everyone she loved and her nursing career allowed her to share this gift with the patients she cared for every day. Her passion and energy have been a blessing to the dedicated nursing teams with whom she has worked at St. Vincent Hospital and UMass Memorial Medical Center in recent years.
McNeil valued family above all else, according to the obituary, and loved the peace of the outdoors, looking forward to camping and days at the beach.
“Even after her death, Megan continued to be a caregiver as her involvement as an organ donor brought the precious gift of life to recipients and their families,” the obituary reads.
Calling hours have been scheduled at Roney Funeral Home, 152 Worcester Street in North Grafton, from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. on August 29.
