Seven people were wounded in a shooting at a Milwaukee funeral home on Wednesday, CBS affiliate WDJT-TV reports. All seven victims were hospitalized and are in stable condition, according to police.
Attendees of a funeral were gathered outside Serenity Funeral Home when someone opened fire from a vehicle, police said. The victims ranged in age from 20-48 years old.
