Katherine Wilson is being laid to rest on Wednesday. The 88-year-old woman died on Sunday after being in a hospital intensive care unit since she was shot during an attempted carjacking back on August 28 in Timmonsville, according to police.

Timmonsville Police Chief Billy Brown said they can't say at this point if she died as a result of the shooting.

Florence County Coroner Keith von Lutcken said her body was autopsied Monday morning at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, but he is waiting for the results of further studies to rule on Wilson's cause and manner of death.

Brown said Jawan Smith, Javares Smith, Alfred Lamar, Diante Rogers and a 16-year-old are each charged with attempted murder, kidnapping, possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime, attempted carjacking and criminal conspiracy.

He said Kevin Kvon Commander is charged with criminal conspiracy, unlawful possession of a handgun and accessory before the fact of a felony.

Wilson was in her car at the corner of Kershaw and Byrd streets when three men tried to carjack her, according to police.

Brown said the men then shot Wilson.

He added they then left in a white newer model BMW.

Police found the BMW the following day, but haven't said where it was located.

The State Law Enforcement Division (SLED) is helping in the investigation.

This investigation is ongoing.
