Authorities are responding after four people were shot following a funeral in Riviera Beach, Fla.

"We solicit the prayers of the saints today as we mourn the lost of two young black men to a senseless shooting after a funeral held here at the church", stated Pastor Tywuante D. Lupoe.

He said the security guards and police officer had left after the service when there were only a few stragglers remaining in the area. He said that's when a fight broke out across the street from the church and the shooting erupted.

One female victim was shot and transported to St. Mary's Medical Center by Riviera Beach Fire Rescue.
