SAN FRANCISCO -- A 31-year-old woman shot in the head while riding her bicycle died after being hospitalized for nearly two weeks.
Police said they could not explain the Jan. 31 shooting of Jennifer "Jenna" Merritt near her apartment in the city's Ingleside Heights neighborhood.
She was found at an intersection last month shot once in the arm and once in the temple.
Merritt worked as a caretaker for two elderly men who lived near her home and was likely on an errand for them when she was shot, police said.
She was taken to San Francisco General Hospital, where she died Sunday afternoon, according to the San Francisco medical examiner's office.
