Shots fired at Tookie's Funeral.

Nation: Anyone surprised? This is the true legacy of Tookie, not a bunch of unsold books.

LOS ANGELES Just after the four-hour service for executed murderer, and Crips gang co-founder Stanley "Tookie" Williams, mourners dropped to the ground as gunshots went off about a block away. Security guards told the crowd things were under control. Groups from different gangs had begun taunting each other. No one was hurt. During the service, speakers ranged from Snoop Dogg and Bianca Jagger to the Reverend Jesse Jackson. Some told the crowd Williams had done good work in prison, writing children's books warning against joining gangs. Others denounced capital punishment. The 51-year-old Williams was executed December 13th for the 1979 shotgun murders of a convenience store clerk and three motel owners.
