BAKER- The last of three teenagers murdered last week were buried Saturday.

Funerals for Diontrey Claiborne, 18, and Kendal Dorsey, 15, were heavily attended a day after another shooting victim, 15-year-old Marcell Franklin, was laid to rest.

"No mother should have to bury their child. That's one of the hardest feelings in the world," a friend of Dorsey's family said Saturday.

"No young child, 15, 16, 17, 18 year old kids deserve to be shot down in the middle of the street," chaplain Keon Preston said.

Police are still investigating the shooting at the Baker Civic Club, where a total of four people were shot during a party. Investigators identified the shooter as 16-year-old Nakeydran Williams.

The fourth victim is recovering.
