Brock “wants to remain humble and quiet about it,” said Scott Stoller from Anderson County Emergency Management, because “he did nothing any of the other volunteer firefighters wouldn’t have done. [That being said] Firefighter Brock is absolutely a hero.”
One of the students and the teacher who were shot were released from the hospital later Wednesday evening, said a spokeswoman from health services in the area. However, the other student, Jacob Hall, remains in critical condition.
The hashtag #PrayersForJacob began circulating on the internet after news of the incident broke.
Children of the elementary school were evacuated from the scene on school buses or picked up from their parents immediately after the incident and classes were cancelled for the rest of the week.
The name of the shooter has not yet been released, nor his motives determined. All is known is that the teenage boy was homeschooled. His mother was at work at the time of both shootings.
