MILWAUKEE -- Police were called to Good Samaritan Church of God in Christ near 52nd and Burleigh in Milwaukee for a disturbance Tuesday afternoon. Inside the building, people had gathered for the funeral of 19-year-old Raheem Johnson.

One person who spoke with FOX6 News said there was a gun pulled and "everyone got ducking and getting on the floor, leaving out. It was just a disaster," said Charmaine West who was inside the church at the time.

Milwaukee police were called in and quickly swarmed the neighborhood. They also blocked off the lane of traffic in front of the church.

Johnson was shot killed near Fond du Lac Avenue and Tamarack around 1:30 a.m. Sunday, February 12th. Police say the incident started in the street as a dispute, followed by a double shooting.

Police tell FOX6 News there have not been any shots fired at or inside the church.
