DECATUR, Ga. (AP) — Police say two people killed outside a suburban Atlanta church following a funeral shot each other.

DeKalb County police spokeswoman Mekka Parish says 19-year-old Carlos Henderson Jr. got in a fight with a group of people Thursday outside Victory for the World Baptist Church in Stone Mountain following a funeral for 19-year-old Ryan Guider.

Parish says the fight continued in the parking lot, where Henderson was able to get a gun from his car. Parish says Henderson and 28-year-old Deimetrius Heard fired shots, killing each other and wounding two others.

Parish did not identify the two wounded, but says their injuries aren't believed to be life-threatening.

Parish says detectives believe they know the cause of the fight but are not releasing that information.
