Hall was shot Wednesday when authorities say a teenager fatally shot his own father and then opened fire at the playground of Townville Elementary School, injuring Hall, another child and a teacher.
The other child and teacher were both released from the hospital later in the day. Jacob battled for four days despite losing a great deal of blood and sustaining a major brain injury.
The 14-year-old suspect was charged in family court in Anderson with murder and three counts of attempted murder, according to CNN.
The family released this statement after their son's passing.
Hall's death has prompted an outpouring of support for his family on Twitter.
