Channel 2 Action News previously spoke with McClain’s mother, who co-owned the business with her son.

Norma Huff said her son was walking out of the shop at the same time when he was hit as an innocent bystander.

“It hasn’t hit me yet. However, my child had a short life. He didn’t have a long life, but he had a full, good life. Never saw him sad, never saw him angry,” said Norma Huff.
