The 16-year-old girl who was injured in a shooting at a Maryland high school earlier this week was set to be taken off life support Thursday evening, according to her family.

Jaelynn Willey was injured, along with another student, when a 17-year-old boy reportedly shot them in a hallway just before school started at Great Mills High School. The other victim was released from the hospital Wednesday. The suspected shooter died after a school resource officer shot at him. 

Willey's family said at a news conference Thursday Jaelynn wouldn't survive. Her mother said her daughter was brain dead.

Police said the shooter had a prior relationship with Willey that had recently ended. They said the shooting was not random.
