CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — The Chesterfield County and Colonial Heights Crime Solvers program is asking the public for information related to a shooting that led to the death of a Chesterfield 7-year-old boy in 2013.
Police said 7-year-old Brendon Mackey and his father were attending the annual fireworks show at Swift Creek Reservoir in 2013 when Brendon was hit by a bullet while walking in front of the Boathouse Restaurant.
