(Los Angeles Times) Claire Davis, the 17-year-old who was shot in the head by a classmate at Arapahoe High School, died Saturday afternoon, hospital officials said.

“It is with heavy hearts that we share that at 4:20 p.m. this afternoon, Claire Davis passed away, with her family at her side,” the Littleton Adventist Hospital wrote on its Facebook page.

“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.”

Davis was shot at point-blank range by Karl Halverson Pierson, 18, who then turned the gun on himself.
