MINNEAPOLIS - A community is grieving along with the family of a 5-year-old who was killed as he slept on his grandmother's couch in north Minneapolis.
A St. Paul Pioneer Press report says the funeral for Nizzel "Stewie" George drew hundreds of people Tuesday. Two teens have been charged in his death.
Minneapolis City Council member Don Samuels says it's a sad day when one child is gunned down by another.
Bishop Richard Howell decried the guns, gangs and "uncontrollable anger" in the neighborhood. He urged neighbors to be neighbors again.
Prosecutors say the two suspects shot as many as 10 rounds at the house where Nizzel was sleeping last week. The criminal complaint says the shooting was retaliation for another shooting that happened at another house a night earlier.
