PARIS - An official says a real estate heiress from Monaco who was shot in an ambush outside a hospital in south of France earlier this month has died of her injuries.

Helene Pastor, whose family built a real estate empire in Monaco with wealth rivaling that of the royal family, was shot May 6 after visiting her son in a hospital in Nice. Pastor's chauffeur died a few days later. The attacker fled.

An official close to the case, who spoke on condition of anonymity because it was ongoing, said Marseille's prosecutor has opened an investigation, but there have been no arrests. The official said Pastor, who was 77, died on Wednesday morning.
