A 34-year-old woman identified as Laura McLeod who police say was shot in at a Bradenton home Sunday has since died of her injuries. Police have arrested her boyfriend, De Undre Dunn, in connection with the shooting.

A 34-year-old Bradenton woman who police say was shot Sunday has died and her boyfriend now faces a murder charge, according to Bradenton police.

Officers found Laura McLeod with a gunshot wound to her upper body inside a home in the 1800 block of First Avenue East on Sunday.

Police received a 911 call around 7:20 p.m. that night reporting a woman had been shot at the home, according to a news release.

Bradenton Police Capt. Brian Thiers said McLeod died just before 10 p.m. Monday from her injuries.

Investigators arrested McLeod’s boyfriend, 30-year-old De Undre D. Dunn, late Sunday in connection with the shooting. After an amended warrant, Dunn now faces a charge of second-degree murder, Thiers confirmed Tuesday.

Dunn was originally facing a charge of attempted murder because, at the time, McLeod was in critical condition at Blake Medical Center.

At his first appearance in court Tuesday, Judge Deno Economou set Dunn’s bond at $1 million.

This story has been updated to include the correct spelling of De Undre Dunn’s first name, as clarified in court Tuesday. Initial reports from law enforcement spelled his name De Undie Dunn.
