Eight-year-old Christopher Bizilj accidentally shot himself in the head with an Uzi during a Mass. gun fair. Christopher lost control of the 9mm micro submachine gun as it recoiled while he fired at a pumpkin at the Oct. 26, 2008, event.
It also will donate $10,000 in Christopher's name to two charities: $5,000 each to the Shriner's Hospital for Children and the Children's Miracle Network through Baystate Children's Hospital.
Christopher's family says they trusted that the event would be fun and safe, and now their family has been ripped apart by Christopher's accidental shooting. They have a $4 million federal lawsuit that's still pending against the club, the event's promoters and those who supplied the weapon and ammunition. But no amount of money could ever bring their son back.
Our heart aches and breaks for Christopher's family.
