Mourners Flee Baltimore Funeral Shooting

Megan Sheets, Daily Mail, September 13, 2018

Chilling video shows mourners fleeing a funeral in Baltimore after several gunshots were fired — leaving one person dead and another seriously injured.

The man killed in the shooting was identified as Maurice Brown, whose younger brother Marcus Brown was being memorialized during the graveside service at Mount Zion Cemetery on Wednesday.

Surveillance footage from a nearby auto shop shows several mourners sprinting out of the graveyard after the shots rang out.

Baltimore County police say the shots were fired by a smaller group of men who were not there for the service just after 12.30pm Wednesday.

They said ‘mourners began running in all directions seeking cover’ from the shooting before first responders were called to the scene.
