Services planned for victims of Missouri shooting spree

Relatives will begin burying victims of a southern Missouri shooting spree this week.

Thirty-six-year-old Joseph Jesse Aldridge killed seven people late Thursday in four homes in the unincorporated town of Tyrone before killing himself.

Elliott-Gentry Funeral Home says services are planned for Thursday morning at the First General Baptist Church in Willow Springs for 52-year-old Garold Dee Aldridge, 47-year-old Julie Ann Aldridge, 50-year-old Harold Wayne Aldridge and 48-year-old Janell Arlisa Aldridge.

Arrangements are pending for 68-year-old Darrell Dean Shriver, 46-year-old Carey Dean Shriver and 44-year-old Valirea Love Shriver while a wounded relative recovers.

Bradford Funeral Home owner Doyle Bradford says relatives are planning a private service for Joseph Aldridge and his 74-year-old mother, Alice. She died of natural causes and was found in a home she shared with her son.
