12-year-old boy shot, wounded at Savannah funeral home

SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) – Police in Savannah are investigating a shooting at a funeral home that wounded a 12-year-old boy.

Savannah-Chatham police spokeswoman Bianca Johnson told the Savannah Morning News that officers responded to the funeral home around 3:15 p.m. Saturday to find the boy suffering from life-threatening injuries.

Johnson says he was brought to a hospital.

People in the area told the newspaper the shooting happened just after the funeral service for 20-year-old Ricky Jerome Boyd, a murder suspect killed by police last month after authorities say he pointed a BB gun at officers.

Johnson says detectives were investigating the Saturday shooting.
