LAREDO — The 10-year-old boy who was shot along with his sister by their mother while they were holed up inside a state welfare agency office died Thursday evening, police said.

Investigator Joe E. Baeza, Laredo police spokesman, said Timothy Grimmer died at 5:45 p.m. at University Hospital in San Antonio after his family decided to discontinue life support.

Timothy had spent hours in the office playing with his sister as their mother, Rachelle Grimmer held state workers hostage and complained about the state denying her food stamps among other things.
