Micah passed away five days later at the hospital.

Micah's aunt, Jeannette Bundy, spoke lovingly of her little nephew who called her "Auntie Buttons."

In an interview last week with Action News, Bundy said her nephew was a happy, jolly kid who always seemed to be smiling.

"It's sad that it happens around the holidays when you're supposed to be joyful and happy, the families come together. This is devastating," said Bundy.

Alvin Wyatt, 31, the suspected gunman, faces numerous counts including murder, two counts of attempted murder and weapons offenses.
