Richmond, VA -

In an update to a story we've been following out of Richmond, the 7-year-old boy who was killed by a stray bullet at a Richmond fireworks show has been identified by officials as Brendon Mackey.

The boy's father says he was walking with his son when he heard a strange "pop". He looked down at his son Brendon and saw something was terribly wrong.

Brendon was rushed to VCU Medical Center. He died Friday morning.

His family remembers their son as someone who always lived in the moment. He was excited to go golfing with his father this weekend.
