Funeral services for two victims of last week's murders in Southeast D.C. are scheduled for later today. Meanwhile there is mixed response to D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty's attendance at an earlier funeral for another victim.
After the shootings, Fenty was criticized by angry residents who say he's out of touch with their community.
Tuesday he attended a viewing for the first of four victims of the shooting, pledging his support for the families.
"I want to make sure that the bad guys who've been arrested, stay in jail," says Fenty.
Fenty didn't remain for the entire funeral. Some who attended, such as Tammy Johnson who lives in the neighborhood where the shootings took place, appreciated his effort.
"He can't be everywhere, you know hat I'm saying, he's only one person. But him being here, that shows a lot."
Former Mayor and current ward 8 council man Marion Barry had a different take.
"I saw him outside with the press, but was he inside? I didn't see him. I'm shocked he didn't go inside," says Barry.
Fenty says he will attend as many of the other victims' funerals as he can.
