Police are also investigating a homicide scene about two miles from Townville Elementary School, where a man was found dead from gunshot wounds at a home, according to Anderson County Coroner Greg Shore.
The victim in that case is related to a teenager who was taken into custody following the shooting at the school, Shore said.
The AnMed Health Medical Center in Anderson, South Carolina confirmed Wednesday afternoon that a child was airlifted from the school to a pediatric trauma center.
Ambulances brought a female teacher and a male student to the AnMed Health Medical Center, where they are currently being treated.
Both are in good condition, reports WSPA.
