A woman gravely wounded -- allegedly by her older sister -- in a shooting at Los Coyotes Indian Reservation last week has died, authorities announced Wednesday.

Carrie Deatherage, 51, was pronounced dead at Palomar Medical Center in Escondido on Tuesday, according to the county Medical Examiner's Office.

Deatherage's sister, 57-year-old Sandra Leigh Stoneburner, allegedly shot her in the head at the suspect's home in the 1000 block of Camino San Ignacio in the Warner Springs area shortly before midnight Friday, sheriff's
Lt. Kenneth Nelson said.

The suspect was booked into Las Colinas women's jail in Santee the following day on suspicion of attempted murder. In light of her sister's death, Stoneburner could face a murder charge.

Officials have disclosed no suspected motive for the shooting.
