The woman who was shot in an SAQ outlet in Baie-D'Urfé, Que. during an alleged botched robbery attempt has died.

Hélène Leduc, who was 58 at the time of the shooting, was left paralyzed after she was shot directly in the neck.

More than a year after the shooting, three suspects were arrested, but no one was ever formally charged because police did not have enough evidence to proceed.

Montreal police say an autopsy has been ordered to determine if Leduc's death was caused by injuries sustained in the shooting.

If so, any eventual suspect caught and charged with the shooting would face a charge of murder or manslaughter instead of attempted murder.
