Funeral held for man gunned down on Christmas

Funeral services were held Friday for the 51-year-old Norwalk man gunned down outside his mother?s apartment Christmas night.

More than 700 friends and family members packed the Calvary Baptist Church in South Norwalk for Larry Paulk?s funeral. Several family members offered remembrances, saying Paulk was an inspiration to many in the community.

Paulk was fatally shot at the Roodner Court housing complex. Family members say he was trying to get two people to stop smoking marijuana when a fight escalated and Paulk was killed.

Police arrested 24-year-old Don Wilson and 25-year-old Jason Gonzalez in connection with the case. Authorities say Wilson is also considered a person of interest in the September murder of a Stamford man.
