DECATUR, GA. — Two people killed outside a suburban Atlanta church shot each other during a fight after a funeral of a slain teen, police said Friday.

A 19-year-old got into a fight with a group of people Thursday outside Victory for the World Baptist Church in Stone Mountain after the service for 19-year-old Ryan Guider, said DeKalb County police spokeswoman Mekka Parish. The fight continued in the parking lot, where the teen got a gun from his car and he and a 28-year-old fired shots, killing each other and wounding two others.

The county medical examiner’s office identified the 19-year-old as Carlos Henderson Jr. and the 28-year-old as Deimetrius Heard. Henderson was believed to have been a friend of Guider’s and both men had attended the funeral, Parish said. Parish did not identify the two wounded.
