Gang Peacemaker Laid To Rest

Hundreds of people gathered at a small Roxbury church yesterday for the funeral of Jahmol Norfleet. The 20-year-old was gunned down last week, not far from the church. Police have not yet identified any suspects.

Norfleet was a gang member who'd turned his life around and was working on a truce between gangs. His transformation was the focus of his funeral, as WBUR's Bianca Vazquez Toness reports.
