On July 1, 2016, Stephen Brunby, 14, went to the Noon Gun Shooting Range in Sarasota, Florida to learn about gun safety, being a man and protecting his family.

Instead, Stephen’s father accidentally shot and killed him.

Stephen’s brother David, 12, saw what happened. Apparently a shell casing fell into the shirt pocket of William Brundy, 64, the father. Brundly overreacted to the hot shell casing, jumped and accidentally fired his weapon; the ricocheting bullet struck Stephen; killing him.

“He wanted to take us to the shooting range to spend time with us but also teach us how to be a man; how to protect the family when it needed to be protected,” David told a local TV station. “It was just a complete freak accident. I cried so much yesterday that my eyes were stinging.”
