A 28-year-old expectant mother with Elkhart ties died after she was shot during a Tuesday morning home invasion in Indianapolis.
Following an autopsy Thursday, the Marion County Coroner's Office announced that 28-year-old Amanda Blackburn's official cause of death was a gunshot to the head.
Blackburn was pronounced dead Wednesday after being on life support since the shooting Tuesday morning, the Coroner's Office explained.
She had been home with her 1-year-old child when the attack occurred.
Her husband, Pastor Davey Blackburn, was at the gym at the time. He came home to find his wife in critical condition after having been shot.
On Thursday evening, WTHR reported that police have "100% cleared" Davey. Detectives say his time at the gym has been accounted for by security camera images from the gym.
Police say a nearby house was burglarized just hours before this home invasion, but it's unknown whether the same person was responsible.
Amanda Blackburn's father, Phil Byars, is the lead pastor at the First Baptist Church of Elkhart.
Shortly after 11 a.m. Wednesday, the First Baptist Church of Elkhart Facebook page posted the following:
Amanda Grace Blackburn has entered the presence of her Lord and Savior. Please be in prayer for her family as they greive this great loss.
The Worship Center is will still be open until 5pm for anyone who would like to come to the church to pray for the family and the Loft will be opened from 5pm-8:30pm tonight.

Amanda and Davey Blackburn were both the children of pastors and moved from South Carolina to found the independent Resonate Church in Indianapolis in 2012.
