Two People Shot During Funeral at Maryland Church

Two people were shot Saturday at a church in Frederick County, Md., where a funeral was being held, authorities said.

The funeral apparently was for a man fatally shot earlier this month in Prince George’s County.

The victims suffered wounds not believed to be life-threatening, the county sheriff’s office said, although details about their injuries could not be learned. They were not identified, and no information about their ages or gender was available.

The gunfire was reported about 2:45 p.m. at Jackson Chapel United Methodist Church in the 5600 block of Ballenger Creek Pike, the sheriff’s office said.

It erupted outside the church in a parking area, according to media accounts. Video coverage showed yellow crime-scene tape strung in the parking area.

The assailant fled before deputies arrived, the sheriff’s office said, and no arrest had been reported as of Saturday night.

A funeral was scheduled at 2 p.m. at the church for Trevor Allan Frazier, 24, of Frederick, according to the website of the Gary L. Rollins Funeral Home. A viewing was to be held from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m., according to the funeral home, which is in Frederick.
