As previously reported last week, there was a tragic shooting in Townville, South Carolina in an elementary school perpetrated by a teenage assailant. Just prior to the incident, the teenager murdered his father, and up until a few days ago, that person was the only fatal casualty of the incident. Unfortunately just a few days ago, it was announced that 6-year-old Jacob Hall had tragically succumbed to his injuries.

To honor Jacob, his community in Townville hosted a superhero-themed funeral and ceremony (superheroes were his favorite), and an insane amount of people actually showed up, many in costume.

One of those mourners was a man named John Buckland, who came in a movie-quality Batsuit and Batmobile.

Jacob's casket was decorated with some Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle toys, a Captain American action figure, and a Batman mask inside the casket.

It's been said that when a person dies young, they are mourned by more people. In Jacob's case, one of those funeral atendees was the State Governor Nikki Haley. And even outside of the town, groups around SC dressed up as superheroes in solidarity with Jacob Hall and his mourners.

Prayers for Jacob Hall and Townville, South Carolina.
