Two people were shot outside a funeral home Saturday afternoon, abruptly ending the funeral of a man who had been killed in shootout last month.
Kansas City police were called to the 2800 block of East 18th St. at about 12:30 p.m. Witnesses said they were standing outside the funeral parlor when at least one person began shooting at the group before getting into a vehicle and fleeing.
A woman in her 20s was shot in the hand and a man in his 20s was shot in the ankle. Both were treated at a hospital.
The shooting interrupted the funeral of Raymond Jones, 28, who was one of two men killed in a July 30 shootout in the 4000 block of College Avenue.
