He attended the party with a cousin. They were celebrating Craven's birthday. His parents said Monday they know their son was an innocent victim; caught in the horror of a gunman's violence.

"No parent should have to go through this. No parent," said Byron's father, Byron Craven Sr. "My son was a loving, caring son. He just wanted to see people happy. If he needed to do something to help you, he'd go out of his way you were okay."

The other victim of the deadly shooting is 23-year-old Kevin Berry.

The Craven's said their son did not Berry or the accused shooter.
