First Funerals in South Alabama Shooting Spree Held
Geneva,Alabama – (AP) - Funeral services have been held for a Geneva
county sheriff deputy's wife and infant daughter who were slain in
a shooting rampage across two counties in rural Alabama.
Deputy Josh Myers joined other law enforcement officers Tuesday
in a chase to stop 28-year-old Michael McLendon, who had killed 10
people and was armed and ready to shoot more.
Myers was unaware his wife Andrea and their 19-month-old
daughter Corrine Gracy were among the victims. Their other
daughter, 3-month old Ella, was injured by shrapnel but survived.
More than 400 people gathered for the Sunday funeral at Sorrells
Funeral Home in Geneva.
