A funeral in Tennessee erupted in gunfire after a mourner made disparaging remarks about the deceased’s sexual orientation.
The incident took place at the funeral of 37 year-old Charlotte Stallion on Wednesday. Stallion, who died after driving her car into the Mississippi River, had married another woman last August. According to a spokesman for the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office, a mourner in attendance made an insulting comment regarding Stallion’s sexuality.
Farrell, quoted in The Commercial Appeal, said, “They were a gay couple. Some male subject said something about y’all leading the wrong lifestyle. A huge brawl broke out with gunshots.”
In response to the homophobic remarks, a woman whipped out a gun and fired eight shots into the air. She didn’t hit anybody, but she could still face charges of reckless endangerment.
