Claire Davis still in coma from Colorado school shooting by Karl Pierson

The lone shooting victim from Friday’s shooting at a Colorado school is fighting for her life, remaining in critical condition Sunday.

Claire Davis, age 17, is reportedly in a coma and stable, but not “out of the woods yet” says doctors and hospital staff.

Claire Davis Colorado shooting victim“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,” her family said in a statement.

“We appreciate your continued good thoughts and prayers, and will provide updates as her condition improves.”

Karl Pierson, age 18, has been identified as the gunman who was seeking revenge against a librarian, but committed suicide when he couldn’t find the staff member and the school’s resource officer was approaching.

Davis was just a random victim says officials.

Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, in an appearance on CBS’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday, said that a shotgun blast hit Claire in the face and that he had visited her and her family in the hospital.

“Her parents are two of the most wonderful people you could ever hope to meet,” Hickenlooper said. “You know, they adopted her. I mean, they are beside themselves, and, really, we all have to keep Claire in our thoughts and our prayers. Her parents … I can’t imagine what they’re going through. It’s unspeakable.”

Pierson was of legal age to purchase the firearm, says authorities.

He didn’t seem to have a mental illness. He had a lot of friends. He was outspoken. There have been a couple stories that he was bullied, and that’s a recurring theme we see sometimes with these shootings. But, again, there’s no rhyme or reason,” Hickenlooper said.

“We’ve invested over $20 million the last legislative session in mental illness. So we’ve got, you know, 24/7 hot lines. We’ve got mobile crisis centers. We’ve got 24/7 drop-in centers, really trying to — to intercept people with mental illness before they can cause damage to themselves or to others. And — and yet somehow this kid didn’t exhibit any of those symptoms.”
