A drive-by shooting outside a Nashville church on Saturday left two people injured as they were leaving the funeral of a woman who was fatally shot earlier this month, authorities said.

The shooting occurred just before 1 p.m. outside New Season Church as attendees were leaving the funeral for 19-year-old Terriana Johnson, Metro Nashville Police Department spokesman Don Aaron said.

According to Aaron, the shots were fired from a late-model black Honda Civic with a temporary tag, hitting an 18-year-old woman in the leg and a 25-year-old man in the pelvis. They were also not considered life-threatening injuries.

Some funeral attendees were armed and fired at the passing car, Aaron said.

Nearly 50 casing markers were recovered from the ground outside the church, FOX17 Nashville reported.

The shooting “appears to be some type of dispute between two groups of people,” but not necessarily between members of the two families, Aaron said.

No arrests have been made in the drive-by shooting outside New Season Church in Nashville.

“This was just a brazen shooting,” he told reporters. “These people have no respect for human life.”
