Two women in an SUV were leaving a funeral on East Fordham Street near Estacado High School, according to the police report.

“There had been ‘an altercation’ with several people in attendance at the funeral,” the police report said. The two women tried to waive down two half brothers afterward to talk about the altercation nearby in the 200 block of North Zenith.
