Teen Gunman Shoots 2 Children And A Teacher At South Carolina Elementary School

Two children and a teacher were shot by a gunman at an elementary school in Townville, South Carolina.

According to KTLA:

The suspected shooter, a teenager, is in custody, deputy chief Taylor Jones said.

The students were sent to a local trauma center, Jones said.

One child was taken to Greenville Health System emergency trauma center by helicopter, spokeswoman Sandy Dees said.

The teacher also was hospitalized. The severity of the injuries is not known.

The mother of a student at Townville Elementary School told CNN Greenville affiliate WYFF that her daughter and classmates huddled in a bathroom.

“Her teacher was shaken up. I know all the kids were scared. There was a bunch of kids crying,” the unidentified woman said. “She didn’t talk for about five minutes when I got her. … I’m just so scared. I don’t even want her to go to school now.”
