WASHINGTON (AP) Funeral services have been scheduled for two of the four victims of last week's shooting in southeast D.C. the worst in the city in at least 16 years.

Police say the victims were together after a funeral for a friend when they were killed themselves in a drive-by shooting.

Services for 17-year-old Tavon Nelson are scheduled for Tuesday at the Tenth Street Baptist Church in Washington. Services for 18-year-old Devaughn Boyd are scheduled for Wednesday at a funeral home in Maryland.

Also killed in the shooting were 19-year-old William Jones III, and 16-year-old Brishell Jones.
