Police say two people are dead after a gang-related shooting outside a St. Louis funeral home while a service was being held inside.

Two other people were injured in the shooting about noon Tuesday at Reliable Funeral Home.

Police Capt. Mike Sack says two men died at a hospital, a third was listed in critical condition, and a fourth suspected victim was believed to have been shot in the leg but hasn't turned up at a hospital yet.

A woman who answered the phone at the funeral home tells the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that the shooting occurred while a funeral was going on, but she didn't know if the shooting was connected to the service. She declined comment to The Associated Press.
