ONLY ON WITN: 94-Year-Old Shooting Victim Recounts Horrifying Night

An elderly woman, who was shot in the head last week, is now back at home recouperating.

Mary Bennett relived the terrifying night to WITN's Ken Heineck, just two days after being released from Pitt County Memorial Hospital.

The 94-year-old Craven County woman was shot and her grandson killed in the shootings on Dry Monia Road last Tuesday.

Bennett tells WITN News that the shooting was all over $20, and that she tried to cry for help when her grandson was murdered. But the woman says her attacker would not allow her to leave and ended up shooting her as well.

Bennett was discovered the next day by a neighbor.

Anthony Wright was charged with killing Daniel Winston, but so far he's not been officially charged with the shooting of Bennett. We're told that could change at anytime.

Winston's funeral was Wednesday afternoon, a funeral Bennett was unable to attend because of her physical condition.
