A South Carolina judge ruled the 14-year-old suspect will be charged as a juvenile with murder. The boy entered court on Friday for his first hearing, but because of his age, the judge ordered he not be shown on camera. The teen faces one count of murder and three counts of attempted murder. He's accused of opening fire at Townville Elementary School wounding two boys and a teacher. Authorities say prior to that, he shot and killed his father Jeffrey Osborne at their home. A 6-year-old boy who was shot continues to fight for his life. Jacob Hall remains in critical condition at a local hospital. Authorities say they do not believe there was any link between the shooter, who was home-schooled, and the victims.
