Man killed after his brother's funeral

GARY, Ind. (AP) — Police say a man was shot and killed after his brother's funeral.

Degerie Scott was killed and another man was wounded Saturday outside Saints Monica and Luke Catholic Church in Gary.

Mourners were attending a lunch at a church hall after a funeral was held elsewhere for 44-year-old Chester Scott. He died after a car crash.

Gary Mayor Jerome Prince says he can't understand how someone can attack a family member at a funeral.

The Rev. Michael Surufka says the family had barely started eating lunch when the shooting occurred.

The Gary Roman Catholic Diocese has offered to pay for Degerie Scott's funeral.
