Gov. Nikki Haley asks state to pray for shooting victims

TOWNVILLE, S.C. (AP) – Gov. Nikki Haley is asking South Carolinians to keep the Townville community in their prayers following a school shooting that injured three.

Haley spokeswoman Chaney Adams said Thursday the governor will continue to communicate through the weekend with the families of the two students and teacher shot Wednesday at Townville Elementary in rural Anderson County.

Six-year-old Jacob Hall remains in critical condition at a Greenville hospital. He was hit in a main artery in his thigh.

A student shot in the foot and a teacher shot in the shoulder were released from a hospital Wednesday.

Haley’s office says she visited with Jacob’s family at the hospital Wednesday night and called the teacher and other student’s mother.

Authorities say a teen killed his father before driving to the school and opening fire.
