Two men were killed and another wounded Wednesday afternoon in a shooting in the Bronzeville neighborhood on the South Side that stemmed from an argument at a funeral. Police said the three shooting victims were attending a funeral when quarreling broke out among the mourners. About 1:30 p.m., the argument resumed, and the three victims were shot during a post-funeral gathering in the backyard of a residence on the 4700 block of South Forrestville Avenue. Police said the victims were gang-affiliated, but the person for whom the funeral was held was not.
