what happened to President Snow after Katniss Everdeen shot the arrow at President Coin.
Why did she shot Coin?



Katniss knew that if Coin was allowed to take over, they would be trading one tyrant (Snow) for another (Coin). And if that happened everything she went though since the first games would basically be for nothing.
There was the added incentive of her being responsible for Prim's death, but it was mainly to keep Coin from gaining power.

Snow was about to die, so she didn't bother wasting her one and only arrow to kill him.


Coin was the one responsible for Prim's death. She planned her death and others on Snow and then use it to fuel the people's hatred of the capital to her side. Katniss couldn't let Coin get away with it and killed her. After Katniss killed Coin, Snow either laughed himself to death or something, but he did die.


Its simple Coin would have turned into another Snow. So,she had to die. Snow died anyway.
