STOCKTON (CBS SF) –The hostage who died in the bank heist and shootout in Stockton July 16 will be laid to rest Monday.

Misty Holt-Singh was customer in the Bank of the West that was robbed earlier this month.

Holt-Singh, 41, was taken hostage in a Bank of West branch by AK-47 wielding robbers while her 12-year-old daughter waited outside in the car. Holt-Singh was shot while in the back of the suspects’ stolen SUV during the ensuing gun battle after they stopped fleeing and turned to face police with their assault rifles.

Authorities say they are still trying to determine whether the suspects or police shot Holt-Singh.

“We don’t even know who fired what, how many weapons were fired,” said San Joaquin County Deputy District Attorney Robert Himelblau. “We haven’t figured out which bad guy was firing which weapon…which bullets hit who.”

Two of the three suspects were killed, too. The San Joaquin County coroner identified them as Gilbert Renteria Jr., 30, and Alex Gregory Martinez, 27.

There will be a public memorial for Holt-Singh 11 a.m. Monday at Bear Creek Community Church in Lodi.
