ANDERSON, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Court proceedings were delayed Thursday in the hearing to determine if the Townville Elementary shooting suspect should be tried as an adult after the grandfather of the six-year-old boy killed in the tragedy suffered a medical emergency in the courtroom.

FOX Carolina’s crew in the courtroom said EMS carried Jacob Hall’s grandfather from the courtroom on a stretcher.

The man was unresponsive for a moment but was awake when he left the courtroom.

EMS checked him out and he was in the lobby recovering when court went back into session at 10:30 a.m.

There was no word on what caused the medical issue.

The hearing was in its fourth day on Thursday.

Jacob Hall, a first grader, died days after being shot in the September 28, 2016 shooting.
