WARRENSVILLE HEIGHTS, OHIO (AP) - The funeral for five family members gunned down in their Cleveland home last week has drawn hundreds of mourners to a church, where the singing could be heard from the parking lot.

The Word Church in suburban Warrensville Heights agreed to host a viewing Friday and the funeral Saturday because of the expected large public response. The victims’ caskets sat at the front of the church surrounded by hearts of red roses, sprays of bright carnations and balloons.

The victims included 2-year-old twin boys, who shared a casket.

Police say suspected gunman Davon Crawford shot and killed himself when they confronted him March 6 in a house not far from where the killings happened the night before. Crawford was the husband of one of the victims.
