A senseless act of violence was visited upon a London congregation, when a drive-by shooter opened fire on a crowd of mourners leaving a memorial service. Six people were injured in the shooting, including a 7-year-old girl who is in stable, but critical condition. Authorities have apprehended a suspect, who is reported to have connections with the Colombian Cali cartel.
According to Catholic News Agency, the service was a joint funeral for 20-year-old Sara Sanchez and her 50-year-old mother, Fresia Calderon, who died within a month of each other. After the service, the hundreds gathered in St. Aloysius Catholic Church filed out to release doves in an act of post-ceremony remembrance, when the attack ensued.
