The website for the Apollo Funeral Service in Littleton notes a scheduled memorial service for Funchess at noon on Thursday, July 20th.

DPD spokesman Doug Schepman said Monday there is no suspect information in the case that can be released publicly.

According to DPD, shots rang out at around midnight at the intersection.

Neighbors described hearing two shots back-to-back and then seeing a red sedan speed away westbound on 29th Avenue. Whoever was behind the wheel got away before police arrived.

Danny Davis, a neighbor, heard what he thought was a firework going off.

“Just a ‘Pop,’” Davis said. “I thought it was a firework or some other celebration for the weekend… didn’t really think anything of it until I heard sirens.”

First responders arrived to find two men lying in the street, both suffering from gunshot wounds.

“It’s a little disturbing having just been moved into the neighborhood two weeks now,” Davis said. “A little scary. I have a 2-year-old, but overall I still feel like it’s a great neighborhood…Hopefully, it was just an isolated incident.”
