TOWNVILLE, S.C. (AP) – A 6-year-old boy who died after a teen gunman opened fire at a South Carolina elementary school is remembered as a superhero.
Jacob Hall’s family encouraged people to dress as superheroes to celebrate his life, and many people obliged at his visitation Tuesday and funeral Friday.
His funeral Wednesday comes a week after authorities say a 14-year-old boy killed his own father before driving to Townville Elementary School. Jacob, a classmate and a teacher were struck as they left for recess. That student and the teacher were treated and released from a hospital later that day.
A bullet struck Jacob in a main artery in his thigh.
