Funeral held for Trumbull Gardens shooting victim Savonnie McNeil

Savonnie McNeil, the man killed in the Trumbull Gardens shooting, was laid to rest Thursday.



The final goodbyes for McNeil, of Shelton, began with a wake and were followed by a funeral at the Messiah Baptist Church.



McNeil was hanging out with friends in a parking lot near where he grew up when the three gunmen fired over 40 bullets from semi-automatic weapons.



Eight other people were wounded in the shooting.



Police say they have some strong leads they are pursuing in the case.
