GREENVILLE, S.C. -

 A South Carolina legislator says the 6-year-old boy in critical condition following a shooting outside his school was hit in a main artery and needed surgery.
   Rep. Alan Clemmons says the bullet that hit Jacob Hall tore through his femoral artery, a main artery in the thigh. Clemmons says the boy had to be revived twice, once while being flown to a Greenville hospital and also during surgery after the shooting Wednesday at Townville Elementary.
   Clemmons says on his Facebook page the boy required immediate chest surgery to stem the blood flow, and more surgery will be required once his condition stabilizes.
   The hospital is expected to update his condition later Thursday.
   Clemmons lives in Myrtle Beach. But he says Jacob is the nephew of his friends and former neighbors. He says the family asks for continued prayers.
   Authorities say a teenager killed his father before driving to the school and opening fire. Another student and teacher were wounded. They have been treated and released.
