Man Killed at Church During Gun Victim's Funeral

By  | 

FLINT, Mich. (AP) -- Authorities say a church funeral for Flint's last homicide victim of 2012 was the scene of one of the central Michigan city's first killings of 2013.

Police Chief Alvern Lock said that a man was shot to death Saturday afternoon inside Full Gospel Christian Church.

Lock says the killer fled and is still at large.

The victim is identified as 28-year-old Steven Lawton.

The church was the site of Saturday's funeral for Gerrell Tyler, who was shot Dec. 30 to become Flint's 66th homicide victim of the year.

Lock says it's unclear if there's any connection between Tyler's funeral and Lawson's killing.
