One person was shot Saturday afternoon at Bonaventure Funeral Home according to Savannah Metro Police.

The funeral of Ricky Boyd was being held at the time.

SCMPD tweeted just before 4:00p.m, about the shooting in the 2500 block of Bonaventure Road.

Sunday, January 21st, Balil Whitfield was shot in a car on Hudson Street. Two days later, police went to arrest Ricky Boyd for the murder. He pulled out a BB gun, and officers shot and killed him.

A woman on scene who was giving the eulogy told a Fox 28 reporter two men started shooting at people leaving the funeral service.

We're told one of Boyd's young cousins has life threatening injuries.
