2 dead, 2 injured at church funeral shooting

NBC Atlanta– STONE MOUNTAIN, Ga. — A funeral for a murder victim turned into a deadly shooting Thursday afternoon. DeKalb Police say after an argument outside the funeral of 19-year-old Ryan Guider, an unknown person opened fire. A gunfight broke out and two people were killed, two others were injured. 

It happened at the Victory for the World Church on Hairston Road near Central Drive in Stone Mountain.

Witnesses say they saw Marcus Ventress at the church, however police have not been able to confirm that he was there. Ventress is accused of killing Guider on May 26 after Guider allegedly broke into his home.

“This tragedy is another reason why people of all faiths must come together in coalition with public safety officials and elected officials to stem the rising tide of youth violence in the African American community,” said Dr. Samuel, senior pastor of Victory for the World Church.
