TOWNVILLE, S.C. (AP) – A website set up to raise money for the care of a South Carolina boy hospitalized after being shot at his school has raised more than $13,000.

A GoFundMe page created by friends of Jacob Hall’s family posted that amount as of Thursday morning. Organizers said they hoped to raise $50,000 to help pay for the boy’s medical expenses.

Jacob remained in critical condition late Thursday morning at a hospital in Greenville. Hospital officials plan to update his status again Thursday afternoon.

A teacher and another student were treated for gunshot wounds and released from an Anderson hospital.

Officials say a teenager shot the students and the teacher outside the school after killing his father at their home.
