Saline County Sheriff Glen Kochanowski on Sunday identified the victim as Gavin Brummett of rural Salina.
Gavin was shot around 5:45 p.m. Friday while he, his brother and their father were shooting a semi-automatic 9mm handgun.
The sheriff says Gavin was shooting the gun when his father, Rodney Brummett Jr., heard two rapid-in-succession shots. Brummett saw the wounds and rushed his son to the hospital, and Gavin later was flown by air ambulance to Wichita.
Investigators are awaiting the results of an autopsy to be performed Monday.
