Greensboro police say a woman shot and killed her son and injured her daughter and boyfriend before killing herself Monday.

UNC officials confirmed Wednesday that the daughter, 18-year-old Danielle Jamesion, is a student at UNC.

Police say statements from the survivors indicate that 47-year-old Sandra Lyn Palmer shot and killed 14-year-old Maurice Edmonds II and wounded Jamesion and Palmer’s boyfriend Maurice Eugene Edmonds before shooting and killing herself.

Jamesion was listed in stable condition Wednesday, and police said the stories of the survivors confirmed the forensics evidence.

Police say the family was involved in a dispute early Monday, though investigators did not say what sparked the dispute. Police say Palmer left the room and returned with a gun.

Autopsies were planned Tuesday but the results were not immediately available.

Officials said Jamesion, a dean’s list student majoring in psychology and romance languages/Hispanic Linguistics, has enough credits to be classified as a junior even though she has only attended the university for three semesters.

UNC has made counselors available to students who need it.
