Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nydailynews.com: “Mother of teen gunned down by Florida deputy is shot at son’s funeral”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The mother of a teen who’d been gunned down two weeks ago by a sheriff’s deputy in Florida was herself shot during her son’s burial service Saturday.

Initial reports were that someone had fired into the crowd mourning 18-year-old Sincere Pierce, who along with 16-year-old Angelo Crooms had been killed Nov. 13 by a Brevard County Sheriff’s deputy.

Police later told WKMG-TV that the shot was in fact an accidental discharge from a firearm carried by a 16-year-old at the service. It penetrated the teen’s leg, then hit Pierce’s leg, deputies told WKMG.

The pastor had just finished his prayers, and mourners were placing flowers on the casket, when there was a loud popping sound, followed by a stunned silence before Pierce’s mother, Quasheda Pierce, screamed that she’d been hit, reported Florida Today.

After freezing for an instant, the attendees started rushing to their cars, bringing the funeral to an abrupt halt. The 50 panicked funeral goers left the cemetery, while Quasheda’s close friends and family attended to her leg, WKMG reported.
