A 6-year-old that was shot at Townville Elementary is still in critical condition as of Thursday morning, according to a Greenville Health System spokesperson.
Jacob Hall was shot, along with another student and a teacher, shortly before 2 p.m. Wednesday at Townville Elementary School.
Hall was airlifted to Greenville Memorial Hospital where he underwent surgery Wednesday afternoon, according to officials.
A GoFundMe page has been set up for Jacob. The page says it was started by a friend of Jacob's family. The friend said the page was set up to help to parents due to the fact they will miss work.
An update on Jacob's condition was posted on the page around 8 a.m. Thursday. It said "Just wanted to give an update. Over the night, there have been no changes in his condition. He is due to have surgery on his other main artery as soon as hes stable enough to do so. Thank yall so very much for all your donations and continue to spread the word and most importantly, PRAY for this little boy. I will continue to keep this open as long as ppl will donate because he has a long road to recovery. Thanks again and God Bless!!"
“We appreciate the community’s support, especially the Townville Rescue Squad, who treated Jacob onsite and brought him to the hospital,” Jacob’s parents, Rodger and Renae Hall, said. “We appreciate everyone’s thoughts and prayers and ask for privacy during this difficult time.”
Emergency officials said Jacob was critically injured, and if not for the intervention of first responders, the "outcome would have been very different."
The other student and the teacher were released from AnMed Health Wednesday afternoon.
