Authorities say a woman critically injured earlier this week in a suspected domestic violence incident in Bloomington has died.

The McLean County Coroner's Office on Thursday also released the names of the three people who died in the shootings Tuesday evening in an apartment in the 1000 block of Four Seasons Road in Bloomington.

Lawrence D. Clemons III, 35, of Houston, Texas, died of a gunshot wound to the head, according to Coroner Kathy Yoder.

Matthias E. Clemons, 6, of Bloomington, was pronounced dead at the scene. Preliminary autopsy opinion indicates Matthias died from multiple gunshot wounds.

Brittney C. Harmon, 32, also of Bloomington, was pronounced dead Thursday morning. An autopsy is pending.

The fatalities mark the third, fourth, and fifth gun-related deaths this year in the Bloomington-Normal community. Police have not yet confirmed who did the shootings.
