Last Thursday, gunfire erupted in the parking lot of Victory for the World Baptist Church in Stone Mountain, GA as a funeral wrapped up. The shooting left two people dead and another two wounded. According to DeKalb County police spokeswoman, Mekka Parish, no arrests were made at the time of the shooting. The actual funeral was for Ryan Guider, 19, who was killed on May 26, 2012.

Senior Pastor Kenneth Samuel says, “Shots rang out and the police locked down the church. I was shocked to hear what happened. I had just finished my eulogy and tried to do the best I could to speak to the many teens about valuing life.”

Although only two were killed and two were injured, many lives were put in danger as most of the people who attended the service had started to empty into the parking lot before the shooting. The identities of the two killed and two injured have not been released.
