Colorado Hospital Reports Arapahoe High School Shooting Victim Dies


Claire Davis

It is with the greatest sadness that we need to report that the suburban Denver high school student, Claire Davis, who was shot in the head by a classmate has died according to an official hospital statement Saturday.

I ask all to lift Claire and her family in prayer.

Claire, 17, was in critical condition after being shot at point-blank range at Arapahoe High School on December 13. Friends and well-wishers had posted prayers online and raised money to help pay for her medical care.

Senior Chris Davis who is not related to Claire Davis said she loved horses, had a lot of friends and always seemed happy. Chris, whose locker is next to Claire’s, helped organize a fundraising effort for her family. Students held vigils for Davis after the shooting.

Typical was a story told by classmate Maggie Hurlbut. “One time I remember I was upset in the hallway, and she came up to me and she just – – it was like, ‘Hey Maggie, I know we don’t know each other well but are you doing OK?’ And I told her yeah, and she was like, ‘Anything you need, I’m here for you,”‘ Hurlbut said. “Again, that’s who she is, and she just wants to take care of others, and that was really just a good representation of her character and who she was.”

Sheriff Robinson called Davis “a young woman of principle” and “an innocent young lady.”

We ask for everyone’s prayers for this family during this extremely difficult and trying time.

After serving in the United States Navy for 22 years I retired from the service late in 1991. Having always loved the southwest, shortly after retiring, I moved to the Albuquerque area where I have resided since. Initially I worked as a contractor for approximately 6 years doing cable construction work. That becoming a little dangerous, at an elevated age, I moved into the retail store management environment managing convenience stores for roughly 16 years. With several disabilities, I am now fully retired and am getting more involved with helping Pastor Dewey & Pastor Paul with their operations at FGGAM which pleases my heart greatly as it truly is - "For God's Glory Alone". I met my precious wife Sandy here in Albuquerque and we have been extremely happily married for 18 years and I am the very proud father to Sandy's wonderful children, Tiana, our daughter, Ryan & Ross, our two sons, and proud grandparents to 5 wonderful grandchildren. We attend Christ Full Deliverance Ministries in Rio Rancho which is lead by Pastor's Marty & Paulette Cooper along with Elder Mable Lopez as regular members. Most of my time is now spent split between my family, my church & helping the Pastors by writing here on the FGGAM website and doing everything I can to support this fantastic ministry in the service of our Lord. Praise to GOD & GOD Bless to ALL! UPDATED 2021: Rick and Sandy moved to Florida a few years ago. We adore them and we pray for Rick as he misses Sandy so very, very much!
