A sixteen-year-old victim from a Maryland shooting died from her gun wounds, the family announced Friday.

Doctors took Jaelynn Willey, a student at Great Mills High School, off of her life support late Thursday night, CNN reported. Willey died around 11:34 p.m. Thursday.

“Have fun swimming as fast as you can in those clouds!” her uncle Timothy Cormier wrote in a Facebook post commemorating her life. ” I love you and miss you for eternity. Until we meet again. Rest easy sweet heart.”

Willey and another fellow student were gunned down when another student, Austin Rollins, came into the school Tuesday and opened fire. Rollins was encountered by an armed school resource officer, though it is still unclear as to whether the officer fatally shot him or Rollins killed himself.

Rollins used a gun legally owned by his father and officers noted that a relationship between Rollins and Willey had recently ended.

“My daughter was hurt by a boy who shot her in the head … and took everything from our lives, ” mother Melissa Willey said at a news conference before her daughter died. “She will not make it.”
