A 24-year-old woman died overnight after being shot in the eye Monday at the Skip-J Range in Anderson County and spending several days on life support.

Sarah Bonner, 24, had been on life support for three days before she died Thursday morning in SC.

Bonner was hospitalized in critical condition after the shooting Monday at Skip J-Range. She was in the area to visit for the holiday weekend.

Ginger Hansborough, Bonner's mother, posted a picture of her daughter's last heartbeat in a devastating post to announce her death.

Bonner died early Thursday, Anderson County Coroner Greg Shore said.

The friend said they were shooting pistols in bay No. 9 when she noticed her friend had been shot, according to authorities.
