Orlando Myron Anderson Jr.
He was so full of life
He was happiest running around the yard, pressing the trigger of his water gun and gleefully discharging it at his friends. The Acquinton Elementary School student delivered his hugs with a smile so infectious, you couldn’t help but go along with it.
“Lil Scrappy,” as he was called, liked to work on his dance moves, especially “the floss.” “It was never a dull moment with him,” said his mother.
It was around midnight on Jan. 23, 2019, when Orlando Myron Anderson Jr., 8, was shot and killed by an intruder in his Mangohick, Virginia, home.
