Colorado Victim Mourned At Funeral

Mourners packed an Ohio church to remember a victim of the shooting spree at a Colorado movie theater. Pastors at 27-year-old Matt McQuinn's funeral in his western Ohio hometown of Springfield spoke Saturday of the senselessness of the July 20 massacre in Aurora, Colo., that killed 12 and wounded 58 others, and of McQuinn's sacrifice. McQuinn saved his girlfriend's life by diving in front of her and taking three bullets. He had just moved to Colorado last fall.
