Lane’s grandmother, Bobbie Jean Lane, expressed anger and devastation at her grandson’s death.

She previously told PEOPLE that although she rushed to the hospital upon hearing Lane was shot, she was unable to get there in time before he died.

“There’s no deer that stand 6-foot-1 and would be shot directly into the chest. That’s why I’m angry,” Bobbie Jean said. “You cannot tell me somebody thought that a 6-foot-1 boy was a deer. He did not deserve to be done this way.”

A GoFundMe fundraiser was set up for Lane’s parents to help cover the costs of his funeral shortly after his death.

In the GoFundMe post, Lane is described as “a very avid hunter and fisherman who loved the outdoors.”
