Hector Romero, 32, allegedly thought Bobby was a deer and shot him in the chest with a rifle, authorities said. Romero did not immediately return PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Romero then helped Lane to a nearby gas station, where the hunters met emergency responders.

“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 says. “You cannot tell me somebody thought that a 6-foot-1 boy was a deer. He did not deserve to be done this way.”

Family and friends remembered Bobby on social media, with his cousin, Michael Rawling, setting up a GoFundMe page for the family.

“Gunna miss this little man like crazy. The kid that lived his life way too fast,” Rawling wrote on Facebook. “Grew up way before he needed too. And lived out life like there was no tomorrow. Gone at 17 but I promise you I won’t forget you. Love you little man. See you on the other side.”
