Church members viewed a memorial on their way into service Sunday morning, many of them in disbelief.
The victim's cousin says it was his little brother's birthday today.
"I was watching TV and I heard like four or five shots rung out. The family came out and people couldn't believe what was going on... It was sad," neighbor Mike White said.
