Friends mourn 2 brothers killed in Omaha standoff Friday

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Friends are mourning two brothers who were killed while helping their sister move out of her ex-boyfriend's house.

About 45 people gathered Sunday to pray outside the home where Jason and John Edwards were killed Friday. Authorities say Kenneth Clark killed the brothers before holding their sister hostage for several hours, and then releasing her and later killed himself.

The group gathered Sunday included friends of the victims, neighbors near the shooting and former co-workers who knew the brothers from Forms Associates Inc. Family members did not attend the vigil.

Mike Everts worked with both brothers. He says they were nice guys who would readily help someone move.

A joint funeral will be held for the brothers at St. Coumbkille Catholic Church on Wednesday.
