WOODRUFF, Rich County — A 14-year-old boy who died after he was a struck by a stray bullet fired by a group target shooting Sunday afternoon had a good sense of humor and the ability to be the center of attention, his uncle said Monday.
Zackary Kempke died instantly after the bullet struck him in the head.
“He didn’t even know what happened, he was gone that fast,” said Cory Hopkins, Kempke’s uncle.
Kempke’s parents and sister were inside a vehicle near Monte Cristo ridge in a remote area of northern Utah when the bullet struck him. They were not injured.
