    Family and friends said goodbye to a Maryland priest shot and killed inside her own parish in Ellicott City.

    The Rev. Mary-Marguerite Kohn was laid to rest Tuesday at the Cathedral of the Incarnation in Baltimore. She and another church employee were shot by a homeless man inside St. Peter’s Episcopal Church Thursday, police said.

    After the shooting, the gunman, 56-year-old Douglas Jones, ran into nearby woods and killed himself, police said. He was upset because he was turned away from the church’s food bank for aggressive behavior.
