Two injured in shooting during teen's funeral in US church

Two people were injured in a shooting at people leaving a church after the funeral of a teenage girl who died in a shooting earlier this month in Nashville, US. Metro Nashville Police Department spokesman Don Aaron said the shooting happened Saturday morning after the funeral of 19-year-old Teriana Johnson at New Seasons Church. When the shooting occurred, the vehicle carrying the body was standing in front of the church with its rear door open and people were leaving the church, he said.

According to the police, one or more assailants in a black car opened fire while passing by the church. He said that an 18-year-old girl and another bullet hit a 25-year-old man in the incident. According to Aaron, both the injured are out of danger and the police are on the lookout for the accused. He said that some people attending Johnson's funeral had weapons and they also opened fire on the car.

According to police, the shooting occurred before Johnson's body was brought out and later buried. Authorities are looking for the 17-year-old accused of killing Johnson in the Watkins Park shooting on Nov. 14. Police said the suspect allegedly fired at the car Johnson was traveling in after an altercation between Johnson and the suspect's sister. Johnson was killed in this attack.
