MIDLOTHIAN, Va. (AP) — The death of a 7-year-old boy in Virginia by a stray bullet is drawing attention to the dangers of celebratory shooting.

The practice involves firing a weapon into the sky, often on New Year's Eve and July Fourth.

This summer, a bullet pierced Brendon Mackey's head as he went to a fireworks show in central Virginia. Brendon died the next day.

Police determined that the bullet was probably fired within a 5,200-foot radius. Investigators have knocked on hundreds of doors hoping to find the person who fired the fatal shot. No one has come forward.

A state senator is proposing "Brendon's Law" to curb celebratory shooting and to provide stiffer penalties for those who maim or injure others with stray bullets.

FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) - A witness to the 2009 Fort Hood shootings says she had to quickly decide who she could save, so she used a black marker to write a "D" on the foreheads of the victims she couldn't.

Sgt. 1st Class Maria Guerra recalled those moments while testifying Thursday at the trial of Maj. Nidal Hasan. He's accused of killing 13 people and wounding 32 others that day at the Texas military base.

Hasan is acting as his own attorney. He raised a rare objection when Guerras said she heard the gunman silence a woman who was yelling, "My baby!" Hasan asked the judge to remind Guerra she was under oath.

Guerra said she didn't want to change her testimony.

Hasan challenged no other witnesses and said little during the trial.
