Teen dies days after being shot by mother, who killed self

BURGAW, N.C. (AP) -- Authorities say a North Carolina teenager has died days after being shot by his mother, who also killed herself.
    
Capt. James Rowell of the Pender County Sheriff's Office told multiple media outlets that the 14-year-old was taken off life support Saturday. Authorities haven't identified the teen, who died at Pender Memorial Hospital in Burgaw.
    
Just before midnight Thursday, authorities say they responded to a call at a home in Willard and found 43-year-old Jennifer Craig dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. Her son was found with a gunshot wound to the head.
    
The teen attended Pender High School.
