Two killed, two wounded at Georgia funeral

Two people were killed and two were wounded Thursday near Atlanta while attending a funeral for a murder victim, police said.

The funeral was for Ryan Guider, 19, who was killed in DeKalb County last week, county police spokeswoman Mekka Parish said.

Parish said a man arrived as mourners gathered in the parking lot at Victory for the World Church in Stone Mountain, just east of Atlanta, and began shooting.

"Everybody hit the ground," one man told CNN affiliate WSB. "Everybody was just screaming and hollering and just running."

One woman told the station she hid in the bushes.

Parish said people at the funeral shot back and killed the man, but WSB reported that police were still looking for the shooter and had detained three other people.

My first question is why in the world did people have GUNS at the funeral?
The boy the people were mourning was killed because he broke into a home and stole jewelry, drugs and money. The person he stole from shot him in retaliation.
So again I ask WHY WERE THERE GUNS AT A FUNERAL?? Because some of the people who were friends with the boy are criminals too. Stupid ignorant people commit crimes like that.

I'm going to take a guess and say it's gang related.
