WASHINGTON (AP) A teenager who was one of four killed in last week's shooting in southeast D.C. was remembered in funeral services as a bright and respectful young and a PlayStation whiz.

Services for 17-year-old Tavon Nelson were held Tuesday at the Tenth Street Baptist Church in Washington. More than 100 people attended the service.

Services for two other victims, 18-year-old Devaughn Boyd and 19-year-old William Jones III, are planned for Wednesday. Brishell Jones, 16, was also killed in the shooting.
