A 17-year-old Colorado high school student who was shot in the face by a teenage gunman died after eight days on life support, a local hospital said. Arapahoe High School student Karl Pierson, 18, shot Claire Davis point blank with a shotgun on December 13, before taking his own life, in a shocking rampage that officials said lasted 80 seconds. "It is with heavy hearts that we share that at 4:29 pm (1129 GMT) this afternoon, Claire Davis passed away, with her family at her side," Littleton Adventist Hospital said on its Facebook page. The Arapahoe High shooter entered the school with many rounds of ammunition, a machete and three Molotov cocktails, and a shotgun he had purchased legally at a retail store under Colorado law on December 6, authorities said.
