Shooting at U.S. funeral service wounds one

PORTLAND, Oregon -- Gunfire erupted during a funeral service at a church in Portland, Oregon, on Friday, gravely wounding a 31-year-old man with a history of gang activity and sending mourners fleeing. Sgt. Brian Schmautz of the Portland police said the wounded man, Darshawn Lavone Cross, had a criminal history of gang-related activity.

Although the neighborhood on the northern side of the city has been gentrifying in recent years, it has in the past been the scene of gang activity.

Schmautz said the shooter was still on the loose. The shooting happened shortly after noon at the New Hope Missionary Baptist Church, where a funeral was being held for an elderly woman, Schmautz said. He said he did not know of any connections or relationship among her, the victim and the shooter.
