Jesse Osborne has been tentatively identified as the Townville Elementary School shooting suspect who reportedly shot and killed his father before driving to a school and opening fire, injuring two young children and a teacher.
The Townville Elementary School shooting took place in the small South Carolina town just before 2 p.m. on Wednesday, when the gunman reportedly went to the school school building and began opening fire. It is not yet clear how long the shooting incident lasted, but a local SWAT team was called in and had deemed the school safe by 3 p.m., Fox Carolina reported.
Some reports indicated that the shooting took place on the school's playground, not inside. Pictures from the scene showed a pickup truck that had crashed into a fence at the school. It was believed that the truck had been driven by the suspect.
