UPDATE 12:35 p.m. 12-1-10:

Information from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch says that the shootings may not be gang related, as was previously stated:

Police on Wednesday did an about-face and said the Reliable Funeral Home shootings may not be gang related, despite previous public statements from Chief Dan Isom."The Chief initially said at the scene that he thought it may be the result of feuding between two gangs but further investigation has not been able to support that," said Erica Van Ross, a spokeswoman for the deparment. "After learning that the parties may have initially become involved in an argument at the funeral, this appears to be, at this point at least, stemming from a personal dispute."

Police say two people are dead after a gang-related shooting outside a St. Louis funeral home while a service was being held inside.

Two other people were injured in the shooting about noon Tuesday at Reliable Funeral Home.
