TOWNVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

In a show of support, Senator Tim Scott made a trip to the scene of yesterday's tragic school shooting in Townville.

Senator Scott commended first responders for answering the call of duty after a 14-year-old gunman opened fire at Townville Elementary school, injuring a teacher and two students Wednesday. One student remains in critical condition.

"These folks here; they're family," said Senator Scott. "The one thing we should all be proud of is the family's response to this critical issue. And such a strong, quick response... It's hard to not think about the tragedy from a personal perspective; seeing so much in so little time."

While at the school, Senator Scott, alongside Anderson County Emergency Management Director Taylor Jones, laid flowers at the school in support of the community as it begins to heal after a horrific event.

"Prayers for the community, prayers for the family, prayers for recovery," said Scott.
