Davis' parents released a statement about their daughter Saturday evening:

Littleton Adventist Hospital, where Davis was being treated, posted its own statement on its Facebook page earlier in the day:

Senior Karl Pierson shot Davis in the head at close range during his December 13th attack on the high school. Investigators believe she was a random bystander and not specifically targeted by Pierson.

Classmates and well-wishers held a candlelight vigil for Davis Friday evening at Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church, while people from throughout the metro area have been contributing throughout the past week to a monument in her honor at Arapahoe High School.
