  • Family, friends gather to remember 6-year-old shot at school

The family of a six-year-old boy who died after being shot at a SC primary school by a 14-year-old who opened fire on the playground is planning a superhero funeral for the tragic youngster.

Jacob's parents are asking that anyone who attends the funeral dress up as their favorite superhero.

Hall's son was playing in the school yard on September 28 at Townville Elementary School when a teen, suspected of having just killed his father, allegedly opened fire, striking the 6-year-old, another student and a teacher.

Renae Hall said her son's funeral won't be any ordinary service.

"He showed us how to love, laugh and smile even on days we did not want to", Renae and Rodger Hall said.

Hall died after being shot last week at Townville Elementary in Townville, located in northwestern SC.

An uncle, Johnny Bridges, told WSPA-TV that Jacob would be dressed as Batman, his favourite superhero.

Classes at the elementary school will resume on Thursday. There will be a lot of children there and I don't want it to be scary for them.

Jacob died Saturday afternoon following the Wednesday shooting at Townville Elementary School.

Solicitor Chrissy Adams issued a news release Monday evening noting for the first time that a third child was injured and that consequently she had added another attempted-murder charge against the teen.

The teen now faces two murder charges for last Wednesday's shooting: He is accused of fatally shooting his father at their home before driving to the school.

The funeral will be held on Wednesday, October 5th at 11 a.m.at Townville's Oakdale Baptist Church.

His mother said her son "wanted to save everybody", just like the superheroes he loved.

A GoFundMe effort has raised more than $126,500 for the family and their expenses.
