Funeral for gym shooting victim

The funeral for a victim of a shooting rampage at a Pittsburgh-area health club began at the same time the state Senate was observing a moment of silence for the three women killed in the shootings. State Sen. Mary Jo White addressed about 400 mourners in Franklin who gathered Wednesday for the funeral of 37-year-old Jody Billingsley. Funerals for the other two victims, 46-year-old Heidi Overmier and 49-year-old Elizabeth Gannon, were on Saturday.

All three women were killed and nine others wounded Aug. 4 at the L.A. Fitness club in Collier Township by gunman George Sodini, who then killed himself.

White presented Billingsley's parents with a copy of the Senate resolution for a moment of silence honoring the victims at 11 a.m. Wednesday, the time the funeral began.
