CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) -

There will be a special tribute for the seven-year-old boy killed by a stray bullet in Chesterfield, last week.

It's taking place at the Promise school in Swift Creek Wednesday afternoon at 3:15.

As part of the tribute, the school's 150 students will lock hands around the building. Then they will release blue and green balloons. Those were Brendon Mackey's favorite colors.

Police are still searching for the person who fired the gun.

Brendon's funeral is scheduled for Friday afternoon.
