Hundreds of mourners in Serbia, many in tears, have come to the funeral for 13 victims of a massacre by a lone gunman.

A 60-year-old Serbian veteran went on a pre-dawn, house-to-house rampage Tuesday in a village near Belgrade. Police say among those he killed were his mother, his son and a 2-year-old boy who was his cousin.

People cried Friday as wooden coffins with the victims' bodies — including a white one for the boy — were lined up on a red carpet before a small church at the village cemetery.

The suspect, who shot himself and his wife after gunning down his neighbors, died Thursday in a Belgrade hospital. His wife is still recovering from shoulder and head wounds.

Police say they know of no motive yet.
