Colorado high school shooting

The 17-year-old senior Claire Esther Davis who was in a coma after being shot point-blank at a Colorado high school last week died Saturday with her family at her side, hospital officials said. 

Claire Esther Davis, a senior at ArapahoeHigh School in Centennial, Colo., was critically injured when student Karl Halverson Pierson, 18, entered the school building on Dec. 13 armed with a shotgun and Molotov cocktail bombs.

In a statement posted on the LittletonAdventistHospital’s Facebook page, officials said Claire’s injuries “were too severe and the most advanced medical treatments could not prevent this tragic loss of life.”

 The teen passed away at 4:29 p.m. local time (6:29 p.m. ET).

“Claire’s death is immensely heartbreaking for our entire community, our staff and our families,” the statement added.
