ANDERSON, S.C. (AP) — A teacher at a South Carolina elementary school says in a 911 call that a teen fired shots then stood just behind a group of children being rushed back into their school but didn't shoot the gun again.

Anderson County deputies released 911 calls made Sept. 28 when police say a 14-year-old boy came to Townville Elementary School with a gun after killing his father.

The tapes were obtained by The Anderson Independent-Mail (http://bit.ly/2dZwDKB).

An unidentified woman tells the 911 dispatcher that as the children were being rushed back into the school the shooter dropped a vest, went to his knees and said "I give up."

Six-year-old Jacob Hall was hit in the leg and died from blood loss. Prosecutors are asking the teen be tried as an adult.
