LITTLETON, Colo. - Claire Davis, the 17-year-old student shot Friday afternoon at Arapahoe High School is in a coma in critical condition.
"Our beautiful daughter Claire Davis has severe head trauma as a result of a gunshot." the family said in a statement released during a 3:15 p.m. news conference on Saturday.
Sheriff Grayson Robinson said Claire was "simply in the wrong place at the time" and that there is no indication that the gunman knew her or was even acquainted with her. He said she was shot at point-blank range.
A close friend told 7NEWS Sautrday that the main concern was the swelling around Claire's brain.
Hundreds of people gathered for a candlelight vigil for her at Arapahoe Park on Saturday evening.
Flowers for Claire have been showing up outside the school. A sign posted by the school parking lot asked for people to reach out to Claire's family, to offer them whatever support they need.
