Man shoots dad at church during memorial service for slain brother
The suspect is in custody.
A service for Antonia Addison, who was murdered last month, took an unexpected turn on Tuesday when police say the murder victim’s brother pulled out a gun and shot his own father.
The New Song Worship and Arts Center on Calhoun Street was packed with mourners who saw everything.
“They got into some sort of an argument at this repast over what was said or how it was said at the funeral, and the suspect in this case decided to pull out a gun that he brought with him to this event and shot his own father,” said T.J. Smith, Baltimore Police Department.
The father shot inside the church was in serious condition Tuesday. People who live in the Sandtown neighborhood are concerned that not even a place of worship is exempt from violence.
