The family of Claire Davis issued a statement early Sunday evening updating her condition. Davis, 17, was shot at point-blank range by 18-year-old Arapahoe High School senior Karl Pierson as he entered the school early Friday afternoon. Davis was sitting with a friend just inside the north entryway near the library when she was shot and critically wounded. Davis is currently being cared for at Littleton Adventist Hospital. Davis' family statement is below:
"Claire remains in critical condition. She is stable, but is in a coma.
The first responders got Claire to the right place, at the right time, and the doctors and hospital staff are doing a wonderful job taking care of her. We appreciate your continued good thoughts and prayers, and will provide updates as her condition improves.
We again ask that you respect our wishes for privacy, and refrain from contacting us, our extended family, or Claire's friends and schoolmates, as
we want to ensure that only accurate information about Claire is shared.
Thank you for your continuing thoughts and prayers for Claire."
