GUATEMALA CITY (AP) — Police say gunmen killed six people attending a burial at a cemetery in Guatemala City.

The National Civil Police say four of the victims died at the scene and two others at a local hospital. Both of the latter had gunshot wounds to the head.

The shooting was carried out by at least four gunmen at the Verbena cemetery on Monday.

Police are investigating whether the killings involved a gang dispute.

Three people were killed in another shooting Monday in Ciudad Quetzal, on the outskirts of Guatemala City.
