FLINT (WJRT) -

(01/12/13) - What started off as a funeral for a murder victim has turned into a murder investigation.

Flint police tell ABC12 that one person was shot inside of Full Gospel Church on Martin Luther King in Flint around 2 Saturday afternoon.

The shooting happened during the funeral of 26-year-old Gerrell Tyler.

Tyler was the 66th person killed in Flint last year.

Neighbors who live nearby are fed up with the violence.

"Mothers and fathers should get together with their children and find out who they have been with and what they are doing. Most of all, it is too easy to get a gun off the streets and it is just more than them being hurt,it's the families who are being hurt by it," said Deborah Blakely said.

The victim has since been identified as 28-year-old Steven Lawson.
