JACKSONVILLE. Fla. -- Funerals for four. 

The four people who were killed in a shooting in Murray Hill  -- nine days ago  -- were laid to rest Saturday.

Hundreds of family members and friends made their way into the Household of Faith Church on Edgewood Avenue this morning for a double funeral.

Still no answers in Murray Hill quadruple murder

They paid their respect to 22-year old Keyonna Brown and her 21-year old sister -- Keshell Brown.

The two girls shared the same birthday -- June 11th -- and were shot to death on the same day.

The sisters lived with their grandmother -- Patricia Brown  -- after losing their mother to an automobile accident two years ago.

The sisters were pursuing modeling careers.

At the same time, at Emmanuel Missionary Baptist church on West 14th street, a funeral was held for Gontrell Hagans -- one of two men killed in the shooting.

Hagans was 27-years old and lived on Timuquana Road.

He was the father of three boys.
     
At 1:00 p.m., a funeral was also held at St. Paul Missionary Baptist Church on Winton Drive for Derek Williams Jr.

A large crowd attended.

Williams lived in the Randolph Street home where the quadruple murder took place.

Williams had a little girl -- age 11 -- and two sons... ages two and four. 

Today was the birthday of one of his sons.
