Name: Dalton Dorsey

Age: 15

Place of residence: Lookeba

Died: April 7, 2006

What happened: Dalton was camping on his family's farm with friends when another boy shot him in the head with Dalton's .22 caliber rifle. He died as his father drove him to the hospital. The shooter, Misael Galvan, was arrested and deported in 2008, said Dalton's father, James Dorsey.

Other: Dalton's father was featured in the film "Son Safety." The movie focuses on gun safety and was produced by the Oklahoma Office of Juvenile Affairs. “My family's lives have been altered without any possibility to change the result of an act carried out by another,” James Dorsey said. “I carry no malice toward Misael Galvan, for there is no atonement that can be made that will replace my son.”
