Murder victim Sherman Miller.

Bold gang assassinations — not officially linked by authorities — appear to take place at funerals.

Funerals attract the dearly departed’s family, friends and foes and is considered the best place for police to search for witnesses and perpetrators of deadly crimes.

Monday: Murder at a Funeral

On Nov. 19, 32-year-old James Holman was shot to death near his home.

Mourners leaving A.A. Rayner Funeral Home on Monday may have witnessed yet another murder, that of Sherman Miller, 21.

According to eyewitnesses, gunfire erupted when the funeral ended.

Mourners may have seen a man firing shots at Miller and another man at the church across the street from the funeral home, according to the home’s director.  The other man remains in critical condition.

    “… “When you determine what a
    man shall think you do not have to concern
    yourself about what he will do. If you make
    a man feel that he is inferior, you do not have
    to compel him to accept an inferior status, for
    he will seek it himself. If you make a man think
    that he is justly an outcast, you do not have to
    order him to the back door. He will go without
    being told; and if there is no back door, his very
    nature will demand one.” Carter G. Woodson
    This…is why we do what we do.
