Sister Of Shooting Victim Speaks

Updated: Friday, November 9 2012, 05:27 PM EST

Overcome by emotion, Shannon Robinson clutches a photo of her critically wounded sister Regina Robinson. "My sister is in the hospital fighting for her life, literally fighting for her life." Detectives say Regina's ex-boyfriend and father of her four children, Patrick Holliday, shot her in the head. "It tore across the frontal lobe of her brain, came out of her eye, and the bullet is resting in the side of her face."


The violence broke out Wednesday when Holliday arrived in Asheville on a Greyhound bus from South Carolina. "He went down there and got a gun and came back to kill my sister."


Regina broke off their relationship last year. "And when he realized it was no more him and her, no more him her and the girls, he just snapped," said Shannon.


She also answered the question of why Regina was at the bus station in the first place. "Her intentions were for the police to meet her there." So Holliday could be arrested for allegedly running Regina over with a car on Halloween. Yet before Regina's plan took shape, Shannon says Holliday opened fire.


"My sister is supposed to be a vegetable but she's fighting." Fighting against tremendous odds. Regina is on a ventilator and has severe brain damage from the bullet. "She's not ready to leave us, she's not ready to leave her girls, she's not ready to leave her family."
