Kingman shooting victim's condition improving at Vegas hospital

Patsy Mymern, the 37-year-old So-Hi woman shot Tuesday, allegedly by her estranged husband, after a heated quarrel in the parking lot of a Kingman grocery store, has been upgraded to serious condition at a Las Vegas hospital.

Mymern had been listed in critical condition since being airlifted Tuesday night to University Medical Center in Las Vegas.

She remains in the intensive care unit with multiple gunshot wounds, UMC spokesman Rick Plummer said.

James Mymern, 57, of Commerce City, Colo., allegedly followed his wife after a month-long separation, believing his wife was involved with another man, records show.

The suspect allegedly confronted his wife in the grocery store's parking lot in the 3400 block of Stockton Hill Road around 9:30 a.m.

and shot her with a 9-millmeter semi-automatic pistol.

It is believed Patsy Mymern suffered from five gunshot wounds to the torso, arm and leg, KPD Lt.

Dean Brice said.

Mymern allegedly fired 6-8 shots.

One of those rounds barely missed another man in the, the bullet shattering the window of his truck.

Two live rounds were also found on the ground, Brice said.

Mymern was then tackled by a citizen and an off-duty police officer who held him until Kingman police arrived.

Patsy Mymern, mother of six children, was taken to Kingman Regional Medical Center, where doctors operated on her in a six-hour surgery marathon.

She was then airlifted to UMC for further surgery on her arm.

Mymern, who has been charged with one count of attempted murder and three counts of aggravated assault, is being held on $350,000 bond at Mohave County Jail.
