Teen who was shot at Colo. school dies

It is very sad news here today. The girl who was shot in the Arapahoe High School shooting passed away this afternoon. She was in a coma since the shooting. In case some of you didn't read my other post, I live very close to this school and some of my friend's kids went to this school, so it hits very close to home. The shooter (he killed himself) lived in the same community where I used to live. Get rid of guns, America! At least lock them up, for god's sake!

Claire Davis dies from injuries in Arapahoe High School shooting

She died at 4:29 p.m. Saturday, according to the hospital. The statement, published on the hospital's Facebook page, said:

It is with heavy hearts that we share that at 4:29 p.m. this afternoon, Claire Davis passed away, with her family at her side. Despite the best efforts of our physicians and nursing staff, and Claire’s fighting spirit, her injuries were too severe and the most advanced medical treatments could not prevent this tragic loss of life. Claire’s death is immensely heartbreaking for our entire community, our staff and our families.

The Davis family would like to thank everyone who have sent their best wishes and prayers, and are grateful for the kindness and support of the community. They know that you all are mourning with them, and again request privacy during this time of grief.

Information regarding a public celebration of Claire’s life will be announced at a future date. Please feel free to continue to leave cards for the Davis family in the Cards for Claire box, located within the main entrance of the hospital.

Davis, 17, was shot in the head by another student with a shotgun at point-blank range at the school on Dec. 13, Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson said.

She was taken to Littleton Adventist Hospital in "very critical" condition, underwent surgery and remained in a coma ever since.
