Two Children Injured in South Carolina School Shooting


This Wednesday, in Townville, South Caroline, two children were shot at a elementary school. The suspect, who appears to be a teenager, is in custody.

The shooting happened around 2 p.m, and fortunately the injuries to the children do not seem to be life threatening. The children were immediately sent to a hospital in the area according to the Anderson county's emergency services director, Taylor Jones. A teacher was also injured, but as of now they're uncertain whether the teacher was shot.

The school, which serves 300 students from Pre - Kindergarten to sixth grade, was evacuated, and had parents to pick up their children.

A mother of one of the students told CNN Greenville affiliate WYFF that "Her teacher was shaken up. I know all the kids were scared. There was a bunch of kids crying." She also said, "She didn't talk for about five when i got her...I'm just so scared. I don't even want her to go to school now."
