Third Victim Dies in SeMo Shooting

JACKSON, MO - A third victim is dead in a murder-suicide involving a southeast Missouri family this week.

Authorities in Jackson say 16-year-old Michale Jeffers died yesterday at a local hospital from gunshot wounds to his head on Monday.

The suspected shooter, 36-year-old Mir Shahin Moshiri, and his daughter, 4-year-old Madison Moshiri, were found dead Monday in the family's home.

Jeffers' mother, Katherine Moshiri, and her two-year-old daughter Meghan Moshiri, are listed in critical condition at area hospitals.

Documents show that Katherine Moshiri had sought an order of protection against her husband.  She feared he would kill her if she left him, and that he would take their children to his native Iran.

She said he kept weapons in the house.
